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.

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 included accessory for the Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer 2i Pro Pack. 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 Pro Pack can be installed on most standard photo tripods, such as the Star Adventurer Tripod or Radian Carbon Fiber Tripod, that have a 3/8" connection. 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.
