Star Adventurer
08/28/2015

The Sky Watcher Star Adventurer is the first sky tracker that I've ever seen that caught my fancy. I've just never liked the looks of the others, and would just mount a camera on a Paramount (not kidding). When I saw a red version (available in Canada, not the US), I thought "Paramount Nano", and I was in love and simply had to have it!


It's easy to polar align, and I can shoot widefield without a computer. It even has a built in intervalometer for time lapse. This image of the milkyway in the background was shot with this and a Nikon D810a on a 50mm f/1.4 lens (at f/2). Two minute exposure, tracked beautifully. Some CA in the glass, but  well tracked.
