iOptron SkyTracker Pro Mount

$595.00

Simply attach your camera to take stunning images of the night sky.

This portable mount makes it easy to take long exposures of the night sky without streaking or star trailing.

The SkyTracker Pro is simple to set up and use. Just attach the unit to a camera tripod then slide and lock your digital camera into the saddle. Align to the South Celestial Pole. Then the mount's slow-motion motors keep your camera tracking as the Earth rotates for beautiful images of the night sky.

It is lightweight and portable, small enough to fit on your palm. Batteries last up to 24 hours, so need for a power pack. 

The improved precision polar scope maintains a fine engraved reticule, and now features adjustable illumination with eight brightness levels. Polar alignment is quick and easy using a smart phone app.

The SkyTracker Pro has four tracking rates - 1x , 1/2x (for sky and landscape), plus lunar and solar. It also includes a quick slew mode with both forward and reverse to help quickly reframe your image without disrupting the camera position.

The removable alt-azimuth base features a precision bubble level, degree markings for the altitude and a built in post for the azimuth control. You can also mount the SkyTracker Pro head (without the base) directly to any standard photographic tripod with 1/4” or 3/8” threads.

A ball head is needed for pointing the camera in any direction. You can add the Astronz ball head as an optional extra if you do not already have one with your camera/tripod setup. 

Please note, the colour of the mount is now black.
