The Vixen Optics Polarie Star Tracker with Tripod is a motorized tracking mount setup for astrophotography. Key features include:
- Compact Astrophotography Setup. This kit includes the tracking mount, a ball head for attaching the tracking mount to the included compact tripod, as well as an additional ball head for attaching your camera to the tracking mount itself. This setup can support camera / lens combinations up to 4.4 lbs.
- Adjustable Tripod. The 4-section tripod allows a working height of 21.2"- 70", yet breaks down to 22" for simple transport.
- Tracking Mount. The integrated compass and alignment window are used to align with Polaris (the North Star), which ensures the tracking mount is rotating on the earth’s axis. This enables you to capture sharper images of star formations without trails. The device is powered by 2x AA batteries (not included).
- Please Note. We strongly recommend the use of a remote shutter release to ensure sharp images.
