Enjoy advanced photographic techniques such as astroimaging, star-scapes, and timelapse terrestrial or astronomic photography with the Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer Mini EQ Camera Tracking Mount Head. It is outfitted with a right ascension DC servo tracking motor with multiple tracking rates for the sun, moon, and other celestial bodies — with more tracking and control options available using the built-in WiFi and the companion Android/iOS control app. The head can attach to most astronomic, photo, video, or field tripod using the 3/8"-16 mount, or the included 1/4"-20 adapter. An included ball head plate accepts most ball heads for mounting a DSLR, and an integrated port on the head enables the unit to activate the camera's shutter to pre-programmed intervals.
