Product Features in Detail
Precise Polar Alignment
The integrated Polar Scope with an included illuminator helps the polar alignment process in both the Northern or Southern hemispheres. That is a great advantage for achieving professional astronomical photos. The equatorial wedge is equipped with fine adjustment knobs in both azimuth and latitude axes for easily centering the celestial pole without moving the tripod. Additionally, the autoguide system enhances the tracking in the right ascension allowing longer exposures with telephoto lenses.
Best for Astrophotography
Stars are not stationary due to the Earth's rotation. Therefore, it's tough to capture them in photographs. However, the Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer 2I Pro allows long exposure to track the stars. Thanks to the high-precision motor and built-in polar scope, you can compensate for the star's movement by rotating the camera to the opposite direction of the Earth. The result is that the celestial objects in the camera's field of view do not move, eliminating star trails.
