The incredibly popular Star Adventurer astro-imaging platform now has Wi-Fi capabilities added while maintaining all the essential original features thanks to the exciting new Sky Watcher Star Adventurer 2i Astro Imaging Mount with Wi-Fi & Autoguider Pro-Pack 50211. The free Star Adventurer Mini Console App for Android and iOS is used to control the Wi-Fi functionalities.
Star Adventurer 2i Astro Imaging Mount offers a variety of setups to meet all of your astrophotography and time-lapse photography demands. It is a high-precision, lightweight, stable, and celestial tracking platform with automatic DSLR shutter release control for sidereal, solar, and lunar tracking. Additionally, it has pre-programmed parameters that help you use your DSLR to make engaging time-lapse videos.
The Equatorial Wedge, Counterweight Shaft, and 1kg Counterweight are all included in the Star Adventurer 2i Pro Pack, along with the Star Adventurer 2i Wi-Fi Mount, Ball Head Adaptor, Illuminated Polar Scope, Dovetail L-Bracket, and Equatorial Wedge. For the majority of popular camera models/brands, Sky-Watcher shutter release cables are available separately.
The Star Adventurer 2i's 1/4" or 3/8" adapters allow it to be mounted to any common tripod. The tripod head may be tilted to fit your latitude, or you can set the latitude more precisely by using the provided Equatorial Wedge. Either a tripod Ball Head (not included) or the Dovetail L-Bracket can be used to attach a camera to the Star Adventurer 2i. Small telescopes, such the Skymax-90, with a 1/4-20 tripod fitting can also be utilised with the Star Adventurer 2i when the Dovetail L-Bracket is used in conjunction with the counterweight shaft and counterweight that are included. A tiny telescope and camera (with a ball head, not supplied) can be installed concurrently on the Dovetail L-bracket by omitting the counterweight shaft. Two cameras can be attached simultaneously using two tripod ball heads using merely the dovetail bar from the Dovetail L-Bracket (not included).

Now with Wi-Fi
The user-friendly, multi-functional Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer 2i mount can handle all of your astronomical, astrophotographic, and time-lapse photography requirements. It is a high-precision, mobile, steady celestial tracking apparatus with automatic DSLR shutter release control for sidereal, solar, and lunar tracking. The Star Adventurer 2i connects to your phone via Wi-Fi and has pre-programmed long exposures that you can use with your DSLR to make mesmerising time-lapse recordings. (Camera, tripod, and optical tube are not included.)
The wildly popular line of star tracker mounts from Sky-Watcher have revolutionised the market for lightweight astrophotography, making it simpler and less expensive to get started in what can be a very difficult hobby. Star Adventurer consistently stands out among the group of portable astroimaging mounts and assists photographers in creating breathtaking time-lapse recordings of the night sky as well as award-winning photographs of the earth and deep space.
Integration is Simple with Any Tripod
A unique Vixen-style saddle plate is used by the declination assembly to mount cameras, tripod heads, or optical tubes. The majority of users have enough flexibility to freely aim their camera across the sky while retaining tracking by mounting a ball head to this Vixen style plate. The Star Adventurer tracking platform comes with an adapter for 1/4-20-inch thread sizes and a 3/8-inch thread socket for tripod attachment.
Automatic Shutter Release Control
With the Star Adventurer 2i, an intervelometer timer is not required! The 2i can trigger a DSLR with the help of an auxiliary shutter release cable thanks to fully programmable shutter exposure settings. The camera will continue to shoot for the pre-programmed exposures after being plugged into the mount and firing a shot until the cable is unplugged.
The Star Adventurer 2i, with a payload capacity of 5 kg (11 lb), excels for night scape, deep space, and time-lapse photographers who want to master the entire sky using every lens in their toolbox.
