How to Choose the Ideal Gear for Your Astro-Landscape Photography?

Regarding the star pointer:

  1. If you are a new player, we recommend choosing the star pointer as a start. It's easier to do the polar alignment for new players.  (Star Pointer's output is <1mw, please check above label)
  2. If you mainly play with a wide-angle lens, then the star pointer is enough and the most convenient for you.

So,

  • If you are new and have a low budget, you can just buy the Basic kit B to start.
  • If you want one ready to shoot Astro kit, then you can buy the Pro kit B. 
  • If you are experienced, I suppose you've understood how much you can benefit from the Rotator's portability and it's straight forward design.

    Do I need to buy the Polar Scope?

    1. If you play with a long lens, then better add the Polar Scope to do a more accurate polar alignment.
    2. If you are from Australia, then you should buy the Polar Scope due to it is prohibited in Australia to buy the laser pointer.
    3. If you may travel to shoot in Australia or some locations that do not allow laser pointer, then better have one Polar Scope for them.

    So, 

    How to do the polar alignment?
    1. We have a tutorial in our user manual, also we have a tutorial for Southern Hemisphere
    2. We are online every day to help, just shoot our Email/Messenger anytime.

      The mechanism for Time-lapse: 
      It works by adjusting the angle of rotation, not the speed of rotation, with seven options: Star Tracking Mode; Time-lapse mode of 0.05, 0.075, 0.1 and 0.125 degrees per picture. Therefore, you control the camera's rotating based upon the angle selected, and the interval set on your timer (you need a separate timer/intervalometer, which is inexpensive). The longer the interval you set, the slower of the rotation. Once you are done taking a picture (which the rotator ‘knows’ through the hot-shoe cable), the rotator will turn the defined angle, which means that the camera is not turning while the picture is being taken.

                  Great product

                  I had multiple chances to try out the rotator since it arrived. I have to say I am completely satisfied with it. I love astrophotography and I always wanted to get a star tracker but I wasn't into in deep sky photography that much to spend too much money on it.
                  Honestly what got me at first is the price and the nice accessories that you boundle with. Secondly I am imoressed with the size. It is small, fit in any photography bag, but still durable and can handle the weight.
                  I had a couple of shoots, and I have to say I haven't tried it with the easy target yet. (Milky way with wide angle) I bet it can shoot 5-10 minutes.
                  I tried the rotator with 140mm crop lens (200 on FF) to shoot the Andromeda galaxy.
                  I was able to pull off 1-2 minutes of exposures.
                  So great product, great build quality, small size, great price!

                  There is one future improvement opportunity though and it is the attachment of the laser pointer.
                  It is convenient to align roughly with a laser and for a wide angle lens it is enough precision, but for the deep sky objects i found it hard to fix the laser accurately enough.
                  The tiny screw that holds the console doesn't provide enough stability and the laser pointer can be moved when the on off button pressed on it.
                  So my recommendation for future versions is that you improve that attachment mechanics there.
                  Other than that thanks again.

                  A pleased customer,
