Great portable tracking mount!
The SW Star Adventurer is a great little mount. I've had mine for about 2 years and I use it frequently. I almost always use it with my William Optics Z61 and DSLR. I had it out last weekend, and, like always, it will track accurately for hours with proper polar alignment. I did trade out the flimsy SW latitude base with the high quality, very sturdy William Optics latitude base (which made a huge difference in stability for this setup). Using a light weight red dot finder, I can easily find objects and keep the weight to a minimum. Very happy with this mount when I don't have time or need for my heavy CGEM.
Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer 2i Pro Pack
I recieve mount in a few days and setup was easy. I am not a expert but had my nikon tracking perfectly the first time i set up
Great Product so far!
I have used this 4 times so far. I love the time lapse shoot move shoot function. I have also utilized the deep space astro feature using my 70-200 2x extension with it with some cool results. Still need to learn the star stacking but this is great for people starting off in astrophotography with lots of room to grow. Looking forward to bringing this to Arizona so I will have no light pollution.
Newbie using Star Adventurer 2i
Im just a beginner to astrophotography. I have yet to take any pictures since I am learning about my camera at the same time. Fortunately there are some nice instructional videos on YouTube to help get started with this tracker. I like all the features so far and don’t have anything negative to say.
A great little mount
It is an excellent mount. I use it with the Radian 61 and Asi 2600 MC, total 3.5 kg with accessories. The key to success with this mount is the tripod. With a carbon fiber tripod it is very unstable, with the tripod of my old EQ6 pro goto (8 kG) it is totally stable, getting great results. You should sell some 4 kg tripod. This mount is perfect for small focal lengths, respecting the weight, which does not exceed 4kg and t the equipment to be placed on the mount must be perfectly balanced. I had to improve it with some accessories to gain stability and reduce weight and now it is perfect for me. An excellent purchase that allows me to travel to the skies without contamination (bortle 2-3). With my old EQ6, with 20 kg +8 of the tripod plus the rest of the equipment, it is very heavy to make long trips, with the star adventurer, I lose focal but I gain portability.
This is great stuff!
