Description Star Adventurer Mini
Shoot the Milky Way like a Pro!
Meet SAM - the Star Adventurer Mini. A user-friendly and multi-function mount to satisfy all your needs for nightscape and eclipse photography, astrophotography and time-lapse photography. SAM is a high precision, portable and stable tracking platform for sidereal, solar and lunar tracking with automatic DSLR shutter release control. It is small and light enough to easily fit into a camera bag or backpack, making it an ideal mount for the photographer on the move. Whether you're looking for a tracking platform to capture wide-field images of the Milky Way, or seeking a compact travel mount, SAM is a necessity for astrophotographers of every skill level. This high precision, portable celestial tracking platform can transform almost any tripod into an equatorial mount, assisting photographers with long exposures of the night sky. SAM breaks from the mold of traditional equatorial mounts with an abundance of add on accessories to complement wide-field astrophotography, nightscape images or time-lapse photography. A Mobile Platform
With the free SAM console app (for iOS and Android) you can customize your tracking speeds, photographers can choose between sidereal, solar and lunar, or other custom presets, useful for time-lapse videos. Even for users with no polar alignment experience, the Star Adventurer Mini is easy to setup using the included illuminated polar finderscope. Once aligned, users can attach their camera and activate sidereal tracking to start photographing the Milky way. Easy Integration with Any Tripod
The declination assembly uses a specialized Vixen-style saddle plate for attaching cameras, tripod heads, or optical tubes. Attaching a ball head to this Vixen style plate provides most users with enough flexibility to slew around the sky freely while maintaining tracking. The Star Adventurer tracking platform can attach to a tripod using a 3.8"-16 thread and includes an adapter for 1/4"-20 thread sizes. Automatic Shutter Release Control
No need for an intervelometer timer with the Star Adventurer! With a completely programable shutter exposure settings, the Star Adventurer Mini can trigger a DSLR using the auxiliary shutter release cable. Once the camera is plugged into the mount and a shot is fired, it will continually shoot for the programed exposures until the cable is removed. With a payload capacity of 3 kg (6.6 lbs), the Star Adventurer Mini is exceptional for nightscape photographers, traveling astronomers and anyone in need of a small tracking mount. Customize your Setup
In addition to the Star Adventurer Mini mount, several add-on accessories are available. The Equatorial base allows this platform to polar align and track in the RA axis, turning a conventional photo tripod into an important astrophotography tool. Both axis also feature clutches, allowing users to aim the Star Adventurer without losing polar alignment. For users photographing nightscapes, the optional ball-head adapter provides more freedom to frame image, while delivering consistent tracking.FeaturesIdeal for wide-field photography, or lightweight celestial viewing.Free SAM console app for total control of the Star Adventurer MiniCustomizable speeds, including sidereal, solar and lunarDSLR interface for automatic shutter controlPolar finderscope with illuminator for easy alignment with PolarisV-style dovetail saddle, with ability to mount ball head for easier camera movementPower Options: AAx2 Batteries or external USB supplyExternal mini-USB power supportWill run 24 hours of constant use on 2 AA batteriesCompatible with 3/8 and 1/4-20 inch camera tripod threadLifetime free firmware upgrade6.6 pound maximum payloadSpecificationsMount TypeMulti-Purpose mountPower RequirementsExternal mini-USB power support or 2 AA batteriesMotor DriveDC servoTracking RatesTracking Rates Sidereal, solar, lunar, time-lapse, customSaddle TypeVixen-style dovetailWeight1.5 poundsPayload Capacityup to 6.6lb / 3kgShipping Weight23 oz / 650g WHO WE ARE
