iOptron SkyTracker Package

This portable mount makes it easy to take long exposures of the night sky without streaking or star trailing.

The SkyTracker is simple to set up and use. Just attach the unit to a camera tripod then slide and lock your digital camera into the saddle. Use the dark field illuminated polar scope to align SkyTracker to the South Celestical Pole. The mount's slow-motion motors keep your camera tracking as the Earth rotates for beautiful images of the night sky.

It is lightweight and portable, being about the size of a paperback book. Batteries last up to 24 hours, so need for a power pack. 

This ready-to-go package includes an iOptron Tripod and a Ball Head. 

According to Sky & Telescope magazine, "The newest tracking platform for camera-only astrophotography is among the best ever". See their full test review here
