More about the product

Since its introduction in 2014, the Star Adventurer has been at the forefront of the lightweight, portable astroimaging revolution. And now, with the Star Adventurer GTi, we take the next step with full GoTo performance in a compact package.

The all-new Star Adventurer GTi features a built-in illuminated polar scope for precision alignment in EQ mode, ports for USB, autoguider, V-style dovetail clamp, optional SynScan hand controller, and SNAP shutter control for your DSLR (programmable via Sky-Watcher’s free SynScan Pro app for iOS and Android). Star Adventurer GTi also includes a dual-position counterweight for use at low latitudes as well as full smartphone control via Wi-Fi. 

With the added GoTo feature plus multiple tracking rates including lunar, solar, and sidereal, the heavens are yours to capture and explore.

With its 11-pound payload capacity, Star Adventurer is well-equipped to handle your DLSR or mirrorless camera sporting a wide-angle or telephoto lens plus accessories, a small aperture astrograph with a dedicated astro camera, or even small OTA’s such as our Skymax series of Maksutov-Cassegrain telescopes perfect for deep space objects, the Moon, and planets.

Available in two configurations (with or without tripod and pier extension), Star Adventurer GTi is the perfect mount for the astrophotographer that wants the ultimate in both performance and portability.

Pros

Nos, én nem a prospektus alapján értékelek. 2023-ban végig csináltam vele egy namíbiai asztrofotós expedíciót második felszerelésként és ZWO ASI 2600 MC Pro, ASI 120MM mini, ZWO OAG-L Off-axis guider kombóval 1" körüli vezetést produkált 6 kg terhelés mellett szélfogó nélkül.

Cons

Az, hogy sajnos nemrég eladtam, de újra megfogom venni, mert szükségem van rá, amúgy ennyi pénzért még hasonlót sem kapok.

Summary

SZERINTEM MEG ÉRI AZ ÁRÁT!!!

Pros

Kicsi, könnyű, hiánypótló mechanika.

Cons

A műanyag elemek pontatlanul illeszkednek, az elemtartó konstrukciója nagyon kiforratlan, ezáltal elég gagyi hatást kelt az egész.

Summary

Kipróbálni még nem volt szerencsém, de első benyomásra nem túl minőségi darabnak tűnik. A a pólustávcső kupakja azonnal leesik, az elemtartó csavrjának se jósolok túl sok időt. A pólusmagasság állító jónak tűnik, és erősebbnek, mint a Skywatcher EQ ék. Összességében, mivel nem túl sok alternatíva van egy ilyen kicsi és kompakt goto mechanika esetében, pláne nem ezen az áron, így azt gondolom megéri megvenni annak, aki egy kisebb műszer alá keres egy “ fog és vidd” mechanikát.
