Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer Reviews

Doesn't work with Android 11

Check the play store reviews for the required Star Adventurer Console app before buying it. Without this application this device is just a piece of metal. The application in the store wasn't updated since summer of 2019 and crashes with android 11 immediately after start. To make it work, you need to download .apk from manufacturer's web site and even then it only partially works.

Not Bad But...

I've used it twice now, one major issue I've discovered is the wifi constantly disconnecting, forcing you to reputedly turn the unit on/off during shooting. Very annoying.

Works Good, But...

Finally had a chance to take Galactic Center photos with the SAM last night. I really like the built in WiFi, Astro Time-Lapse, and the ability to control my Olympus camera.  And, the polar alignment seems relatively accurate WHEN THE MOUNT ACTUALLY TRACKS, (see below). However, I also tried my Panasonic LX-10 because it has an F1.4 lens. But, I couldn't figure out why even though I was using faster exposures, I was getting bad star trails with the LX-10. Turns out the SAM doesn't default to Sidereal tracking like most mounts. You must push the Run button in the Astrophotography page to activate Sidereal, (or any other astro tracking), regardless of whether you're using the camera control functions on that page or not. The SAM manual is not clear on this point at all. Furthermore, it seems to stop tracking if it loses the wifi connection with the phone. I'll need to experiment more to understand that issue.   Finally, there needs to be a POSITIVE INDICATION ON THE MOUNT, (not in the app), that the mount is TRACKING successfully. Can you imagine how frustrating it would be to do an all night Astro Time-Lapse only to find out the mount wasn't tracking?
