All Star Telescope's Take

SkyWatcher Star Adventurer 2i Pro Pack is the benchmark product in this category.  We think this is the best star tracker on the market today.  It has a robust 11lb payload which is more than enough for running a DSLR and a high quality camera lens for long exposures.  It's also a great option for a true ultra-light grab-and-go setup.  You can pair this with a small astrograph refractor and very reasonably hike to a mountain top, or a remote dark site for some truly beautiful imaging.  

The Star Adventurer Pro Pack is compatible with accessories like the ZWO ASIAIR and ZWO cameras.  It's also compatible with the QHY Polemaster electronic polar scope if you're looking to really nail your polar alignment.  

This is a user-friendly and super versatile mount to satisfy all your needs for astronomy, astrophotography, and time-lapse photography. It is a high precision, portable, and stable celestial tracking platform for sidereal, solar, and lunar tracking with automatic DSLR shutter release control. Using a Wi-Fi signal to connect to your phone, the Star Adventurer 2i contains preprogrammed long exposures, helping you create mesmerizing time-lapse videos with your DSLR. (Camera, tripod, and optical tube are not included).

Description

Award Winning Images

Sky-Watcher’s extremely popular family of star tracker mounts have helped revolutionize the lightweight astrophotography market making it easier and less expensive to enter into what can be a very challenging hobby. Time and again, Star Adventurer leads the pack of lightweight astroimaging mounts and helps photographers produce award-winning landscape and deep space images and stirring time-lapse videos of the night sky.

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 point their camera around the sky freely while maintaining tracking. The Star Adventurer tracking platform can attach to a tripod using a 3/8-inch thread socket and includes an adapter for ¼-20-inch thread sizes.

Automatic Shutter Release Control

No need for an intervelometer timer with the Star Adventurer 2i! With completely programable shutter exposure settings, the 2i 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 5kg (11 pounds), the Star Adventurer 2i is exceptional for nightscape, deep space, and time lapse photographers looking to master the entire sky utilizing every lens in their tool kit.

First Review

I found the instructions to assemble the unit very clear, the unit is fits well on the tripod I bought with it, and is very easy to position. Both camera/telescope mounts work very well with the ball mount in the pack. When using the mount for heavier DSLR lenses and telescopes, installing the light to illuminate the polar alignment is a bit of a joke but it works.

Arrived in good order and on time!

The Star Adventurer 2i Pro Pack was on sale from All-Star Telescope, so it was a great time to order one. It hasn't seen first light yet, but all parts arrived as agreed, and the unit was well-packed. Thank you!

Great portable setup

Love the portability of this unit. Solid construction...very well made. The tripod is very sturdy. Polar alignment is easy and tracking is very accurate. The wifi feature makes it easy to use, and all the mounting bars/accessories make it easy to configure in many different ways. I have to larger eq mounts, but the portability and versatility of the Star Adventurer makes it easy to take out of the city for some widefield imaging.
