Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer Reviews

Great Quality

I'm totally impress with this small Sky Watcher. It's easy to setup and use and very accurate. I've taken 2 min exposures with 500mm lens with no star trails. Great purchase for anyone looking to get into astrophotography.

Good for the $$$$$

This mount works really good for astrophotography. You will need to carefully select what you're going to load into it because it has a lighter payload even tho you can go over weight it isn't recommended but will work at times. Guiding can be done but will add weight so for me it's best not to guide and just track. Polar alignment is super quick and easy as well. Level, balance and align and start capturing photons!!!

This was pretty close to what I expected. Size wise this is a bit bigger than I thought. I am not sure if I carry this around when I hike in to a shooting spot but will be using mostly for a deep sky stuff. And maybe some Milky Way.

Didn't work from the start

Bought earlier this year. Tried it a few times and it didn't work. I could hear the motor but the mount was not rotating. Decided to try again after reading more online and still didn't work-- tested it by aiming at a fixed spot and seeing if the camera moved after an hour. It did not. Opened back and confirmed that while the motor is running, the gear is not turning. Thought about upgrading firmware but that requires a windows machine and I only have Macs. So this is going back for service. My advice is to try it as soon as you get it, and if it doesn't work, return it. Other reviewers are finding similar things, it is not a fluke.

So useful

I haven't had a chance to use it yet. Been snowing and it cloudy all hit one day since I bought it. Did get to use my buddies and it worked as intended. Great price for entry level astrophotography.

Unfortunately it doesn't look like we have anything in our System that will hold that Payload. The heaviest these Trackers accept is up to 11LB. My apologies.
