Bresser StarTracker Astronomical Photo Mount Kit

Bresser StarTracker Astronomical Photo Mount Kit FREE DELIVERY ON THIS ITEM - Do you already own a photo camera and would like to create impressive pictures of the night sky with the help of the long exposures, or even make time-lapse pictures with little effort? The Bresser StarTracker Astronomical Photo Mount Kit is the ideal base. This mount is particularly well suited, not only for beginners in astrophotography, but also the more experienced astrophotographers, who will appreciate its accurate tracking and lightweight nature. The built-in tracking motor rotates the saddle-mounted camera precisely against the Earths rotation and will keep the stars in pinpoint shape, even during very long exposures (assuming accurate polar alignment). This kit contains all the components required for a quick and easy entry into the world of astrophotography with the exception of a camera and telephoto lens: A stable Bresser tripod TP-100 DX with carrying bag, the Bresser Micro Motion Head MH-100 (polar-wedge), the Bresser Polar Finder Scope for StarTracker PM-100 and of course the Bresser StarTracker astrophoto mount PM-100 with ball head. Which cameras are basically suitable for use with the Bresser photo mount? All cameras with a 1/4 inch tripod connection thread and bulb length B for long exposure can be used on this mount. The Bresser StarTracker Astronomical Photo Mount PM-100 is designed for a camera with lens of max. 2.0 kg total weight to carry and track in polar mode. In Azimuth panning mode, a camera weight up to 5.0kg can be supported. Large aperture, wide-angle lenses (sub-70mm) are ideal for starting with this mount, because the requirements for tracking accuracy accumulate with increasing focal length and exposure time. Thus, a shot with wide-angle lens can be exposed for up to several minutes and the stars remain sharp, without trailing. However, with a 100-200mm telephoto lens, the polar alignment of the photo mount must be exactly right. But thanks to the included optical Polar Finder Scope, this can be acheived quickly and accurately. After setting up the light and compact StarTracker Photo Mount, simply set the approximate latitude (pole height) and aim Polaris through the integrated Polar Finder Scope. Then mount the camera/lens, using the quick-release plate on the supplied ball head. With the ball head, the camera can be aligned and pointed easily to any section of the sky. As soon as the tracking motor is switched on, long-exposures can be started immediately. This is an under 5 minutes task, once you have practised the set-up a few times. The tracking is carried out by a precise stepper motor, which is controlled by an easy digital setup on the mounts inbuilt LCD screen. Low power consumption allows up to 20 hours of operation with just one battery charge, or simply use the micro USB port for an unlimited power supply.
