Star Adventurer

The Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer provides a solid basis for long exposure astro-images and nightscapes, where celestial tracking is essential for clear images. The complete system includes a solid tripod, the Star Adventurer tracker with astro accessories, and a Canon XSi camera with lens and intervalometer. Everything required to take ultra wide field Milky Way nightscapes, to pleasing compositions of constellations, the Moon and planets.

Members should prepare for use of the system by ensuring that they have a relatively large capacity SD card on which to store their images for subsequent post-processing, and some AA batteries, in case they need replacing.

The complete system consists of an aluminum tripod, a carrying case for the Star Adventurer, and a carrying case for the camera and accessories.
