Details

iOptron SkyGuider Mount Head Only


The SkyGuider mount is simple to set up. Just attach the mount to a tripod. Mount your digital camera or lightweight scope onto the mount and balance it. Align the mount to the Pole Star using the included AccuAligning dark field illuminated polar scope and a smart phone App. Then turn on the motor and it will keep your camera tracking at the same speed the earth rotates! With the same gears and motors as the ZEQ25, the SkyGuider keeps your camera in motion to avoid star trails and allows you to take long exposures for beautiful images of the night sky. A built-in ST-4 compatible guide port will enable you to autoguide the mount and make the tracking even better!

Will I be able to guide this scope with ASCOM platform.

How large is the platform where a ballhead mounts to the Skyguider? I have a ballhead with a 66mm base, will this interfere with the ability of the skyguider to track the sky?
