Practice test :
As anyone who has ever used one of these trackers know the accuracy depends extremely on the accuracy of polar alignment from .

When the Star Adventurer polarscope rotates with the shaft , and therefore one can very easily adjust to the axis. Then the North Star by Kochab method to the correct point on the perimeter and off you go.

I had made the 200L lens on the Eos , and after aligning on meridian / equator times a few photos 2 minutes . The saw already quite good , but it took a little fine tuning on the pole orientation , then from frame to frame was no movement of the stars to be seen.
This is already something that no longer goes well with the iOptron or POLARIE with the 200L, which begin at the strong eccentric load to hop on and you like to get double stars .
When Star Adeventurer gabs this problem, the tracking was entirely consistent with no erratic deviations.

Then tried 5min exposures, and lo and behold, even as I was able to completely point-like stars to come.

In the handling of the Star Adventurer is very pleasant, compared to the other trackers on the market. The clamps you can easily grab, and the slip couplings have this great friction clutch. It has not so attract a Gefrickel with mini screws are hard to believe but gets quite firm, and must get open again when changing the camera position. The Poleinstellung is easy and very finely vary, you can make very small movements and the terminals not changed.

This looks so very good, and the next thing I want to hang a little more weight and work with counterweight. The small Lacerta 72/432 Apo looks to me like compatible ...

Pros

Easy to assemble, great for portability, light weight and sturdy! Illuminated buttons come in handy at night, as well as a built-in illuminated polarscope (illumination module is separate and can be lost/forgotten in field). A real mobile astrophoto set! Auto guider port, possibility of external mini USB power supply! Starting exposure control after obtaining a suitable cable (for 12 EUR). The drive is surprisingly accurate, it doesn't rattle, it doesn't wobble, and it doesn't jam! Key parts are made of metal. Powered by 4 AA batteries - you can buy them anywhere and the possibility of using rechargeable ones - economical and ecological way. Polar alignment is quite easy and accurate to do.

Cons

The AA battery holder is too tight, the batteries are stuck in it, it is difficult to take them out - recommend to use suitable tool - something flat and blunt that is also good for tightening screws! I am using rechargeable AA batteries 2450mAh that are bit larger in size. Polarscope needed some little adjustment - it is noted in official manual that sometimes it is needed and also how to do it.

Summary

-when you become familiar with a little cons then you are able to eliminate them -my very first testing with Sigma 105mm f2.8 EX Macro (old lens for Nikon), manualy focused in pair with Sony A7R III A (42MPX) - I got 95% pin point stars at exposure time of 7 minutes - check the gallery (SA2i_105mm_7minutes-notGuidedCrop1 and 2) -I can say it's a great little mount! -Budapest Telescope Centre ( https://tavcso.hu ) eshop review - 100% - goods in stock (almost all other sellers here in Europe are out of stock), very satisfiable low prices, quick delivery - 2 working days (Hungary --> Czech republic), great communication - I recommend the seller. Thank you!

Pros

Könnyű össze állítani, hordozhatóság szempontjából kiváló! Éjjel jól jönnek a megvilgáított gombok, beépített megvilágítható pólustávcső. Igazi mobil asztrofotós szett! Auto guider port, külső mini usb tápellátás lehetősége! Expozíció vezérlés indítása megfelelő kábel beszerzése után. A meghajtás meglepően pontos, nem kottyan nem lötyög és nem is szorul!

Cons

Mint minden kínában gyártott eszköz, ez is külsőleg tetszetős megjelenésű darab de sajnos az összeszerelés és valamint a gyártási minőség hagy némi kívánni valót maga után. A pólustávcső alapból hibásan volt beállítva, ezt utólag némi segítséggel sikerült jusztírozni. A pólus magasság állító ék kuplungját fellazítva billen az egész, ezért macerás a beállítása. Utolsóként pedig a 2AA elemtartó túl passzos szorulnak benne az akkuk, nehézkes a be illetve ki szedésük!

Summary

Célom nagylátószögű és kistelés asztrofotók készítésére szánt eszköz beszerzése volt, ennek a kritériumnak kiválóan megfelel a Star adventurer full szett. Fontos volt a kis súly a mobil összeszerelés lehetősége is! Előnyeivel már most megbarátkoztam, hiányosságaival és a fenti hibák ellenére azt mondom jó kis mechanika! Későbbiekben fotókkal illusztrálom képességeit!
