DESCRIPTION

Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer Pro Pack

This Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer Pro Pack consists of the Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer Multi-Function Mount, a polar scope with an illuminator, a counterweight kit, a ball head adapter, a latitude (EQ) base, and a Sky-Watcher Declination Bracket. This combination can be used for astronomy, astrophotography, and time-lapse photography. You can attach the Star Adventurer to your own photographic tripod and head or to an astronomical scope tripod and mount. Tripod and head are not included with this product.

The Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer Pro Pack is built around the Star Adventurer mount, which 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 preprogrammed parameters that will help you create beautiful images and video. The Star Adventurer Multi-Function Mount also has an automatic DSLR shutter release control built-in.

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 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 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 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.
