Sky-Watcher’sStar Adventurer 2i Motorized Mount Photo Package is an easy-to-use equatorial mount that offers accurate tracking capabilities for time-lapse and long-exposure wide-field astrophotography.

With a simple turn of a dial, select from Lunar, Solar, or Star tracking modes, or four speeds from 0.5x to 12x if the modes are not exactly right.

An integrated polar alignment scope with an included illuminator help the alignment process in either the Northern or Southern Hemispheres, and a date dial compensates for star drift over time to extend the usability of the scope.

Included with the Star Adventurer is a ball head adapter with a 3/8″-16 screw to mount a photo ball head to adapt it for use with a DSLR camera.

A 2.5mm three-segment stereo jack is integrated into the mount and gives the mount the ability to control a compatible DSLR’s shutter release for long-exposure or time-lapse photography.

Pre-programmed intervals, based on the tracking mode selected, optimize the exposure times for the subjects selected.

The Star Adventurer mount features a Vixen-style dovetail saddle for compatible accessories and optical tube assemblies (OTAs).

 It has both 3.8″-16 and 1/4″-20 tripod mounts to fit on most astronomical, photo, or video tripods and is offered here without a tripod, OTA, or counterweights.
