Lacerta MGEN-3 Autoguider (A.I., Standalone, Remote)

Az alapbeállítások már előre programozottak, szinte csak ellenőrzésképp kellett átfutni, majd egy gombnyomással indítható a vezetés. Egyszerű, áttekinthető menü, a fényképezőgép-vezérlés indítása után szépen teszi a dolgát a programozásnak megfelelően. A bolygatás funkció óriási ötlet! Plusz garanciát és terméktámogatást is lehet hozzá vásárolni (további fejlesztések várhatók).


Sajnos az ára! Egyéb hátrányt egyenlőre nem tudok mondani.


Szerintem megéri, a pontos vezetés a fotózáshoz elengedhetetlen, ugyanakkor a cég folyamatosan fejleszt és élvonalbeli.
