iOptron SkyGuider Mount w/ Field Tripod
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!

The mount seems to have only a 3/8" threaded bolt to attach accessories so it would probably be easier
to get a mount with a Vixen-style saddle. Please e-mail me or call me at 800-483-6287 and
we can talk about different mounts. Thanks.
