The compact and, among amateur astronomers, very well known travelling mount SkyTracker from iOptron is the base for this high-quality set offer. The SkyTracker provides automatic precise tracking and thus allows long exposures of the starry sky.
♦ Images of the night sky with foreground subject - you can halve the tracker´s speed so the stars remain longer dot-like while you can still take a sharp image of, as an example, a tree in the foreground.
♦ Time lapse photography - time lapse recordings are a fascinating field of photography. The SkyTracker Set allows, for example, precise pannings, or you track the stars with half speed for getting more dynamics into the image.
