Product Details

  • The Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer 2i Pro Pack is built around the Star Adventurer 2i mount. The Star Adventurer astrophotography mount is a high precision, portable, and stable celestial tracking platform for sidereal, solar, and lunar tracking. It is designed to work with your DSLR camera and includes pre-programmed parameters that will help you create beautiful images and videos. The Star Adventurer Multi-Function Mount also has an automatic DSLR shutter release control built-in.

    Sky-Watcher simplifies the astrophotography process by making the Star Adventurer 2i a complete equatorial mount package that tracks the night sky smoothly. Just align your system and activate the tracking, then you're good to go! 

    THE SKY-WATCHER STAR ADVENTURER 2i PRO PACK FEATURES

    The included Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer Dec Bracket lets you attach a camera or small telescope, which can then be pointed to different Declination angles as you wish. The Dec bracket includes a motion control knob and a Dec axis locking knob. With the Dec Bracket installed, the Star Adventurer 2i becomes a functional equatorial mount, including Dec angle adjustments operating with manual control.

    The Counterweight Kit is an accessory for the Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer 2i Mount. The stainless steel counterweight shaft attaches to the Star Adventurer Dec Bracket very easily, and it is used to counter-balance a heavy payload.

    The Latitude Equatorial Base provides the ability to adjust the latitude and azimuth of the system for correct polar alignment. This Latitude Equatorial Base by Sky-Watcher adjusts from 0-degree latitude to 70-degree latitude. By turning the Horizontal Adjustment knob, you can make adjustments to the azimuth position. There is an included bubble level to assist in leveling the base.

    This Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer 2i Astro Package can be installed on a photo tripod or other mount which has an adjustable head. If you are going to align the Star Adventurer Astro Package to the celestial pole, be sure that your photo head can tilt back far enough so that you can see the celestial pole with the included Polar Scope at your particular latitude.

Solid little star tracker

Probably the weakest component of this star tracker is the wedge. I replaced mine with a Williams Optics wedge like many folks on youtube. I also modified it a little by adding a little shim on the tightening screws and it seemed to make it more stable.

Disregard My DOA out of the box review!!

I contacted SkyWatcher Customer Service and they responded immediately!!! Talked me through the issue (user induced error) and the mount works flawlessly!!! Thumbs up to SkyWatcher. This is an awesome mount

Tracker DOA out of the box

Powered on, but wouldn't track in any mode (the slew buttons wouldn't work either). And yes, I'm aware of how slow celestial tracking is, I have a full size mount I use for astrophotography as well. I was just hoping to find a portable tracker... But, this apparently isn't it. I'm really disappointed in the quality control. How do you not catch a non-functioning tracker before it's packed up for sale?!?!?! OPT's return policy says it's the manufacturer's responsibility to make thing right on a defective item. So, I have contacted SkyWatcher Customer service. Stay tuned.... But, for now, I have a $409 paper weight. Beyond angry!!

A great piece of technology

The Sky Watcher Star Adventurer 2i Pro Pack is a necessity for beginner astrophotographers and astrophotographers on a budget. It's very easy to set up. The only downside is the app. I needed to download the latest version from Sky Watcher's website in order to connect to the Star Adventurer properly.

Great portable mount

There were a few pleasant surprises. First, I thought this mount was on an extended backorder and low and behold it arrived at my door in just a few days. Thanks OPT! Second, setting up and using this mount was very straightforward and easy. It seemed like I was up and tracking in just a few short minutes (I was trying it out in a Michigan late winter night so this means below freezing). Third, I set it up to use with an ASIAir Pro with tracking and dithering turned on and had no issues. In general, I am very happy with the mount and would definitely recommend it to others.
