Presenting the SkyGuider Pro Mount

Leading the camera tracker market for nearly four years, iOptron‘s SkyGuider Pro Mount pushes closer to perfection.

Key Features

The redesigned SkyGuider Pro mount  is more compact, because it’s small enough to fit on your palm. It has better precision, silent tracking, built-in rechargeable power source, ST-4 guiding port and camera trigger port. The improved precision polar scope maintains a fine engraved reticule. It now features adjustable illumination with different brightness levels. Using with our iOS app, quick and accurate polar alignment is just a joy.

The DEC mounting bracket allows you to balance a heavy camera and/or lens better, or even mount a light telescope due to its small size. The optional 8408 hand controller allows you to check the Pole Star position for the polar alignment, slew the mount, adjust the guiding rate, change the mount settings and control the camera trigger.

The SkyGuider Pro mount features four tracking rates, 1X or sidereal, 1/2X for sky and landscape combined, solar and lunar. All 4 tracking rates work in both northern and southern hemispheres. We have also added a quick slew mode with both forward and reverse to help quickly reframing your image without disrupting the cameras position.

The Tracker Base

iOptron have made big improvements on the removable alt-azimuth base. It features a precision bubble level, degree markings for the altitude and a built in post for the azimuth control. You can also mount the SkyGuider Pro head (without the base) directly to any standard photographic tripod with 1/4” or 3/8” threads. The DEC mounting bracket package makes the SkyGuider Pro mount suitable for a heavier camera/lens system, The system includes DEC mounting bracket, counterweight shaft, counterweight and Vixen-type dovetail saddle. The SkyGuider Pro is certainly a must have tool for any photographer interested in star scape or wide field astrophotography.

This tracker is perfect for portable use, hikers who also want to do star scape photography or even a holiday travel setup. With clever packing it will all fit into 1 single camera bag. A perfect pairing for this would be the Redcat 51 Telescope with the Extension bar to help balance the scope.
