Polar finderscope with illuminator for easy alignment with Polaris
DSLR camera interface with automatic shutter control
V-style dovetail saddle, with ability to mount ball head for easier camera movement
/ A Mobile Platform /
With the free SAM console app (for iOS and Android) you can customize your tracking speeds, photographers can choose between sidereal, solar and lunar, or other custom presets, useful for time-lapse videos. Even for users with no polar alignment experience, the Star Adventurer Mini is easy to setup using the included illuminated polar finderscope. Once aligned, users can attach their camera and activate sidereal tracking to start photographing the Milky way.
/ Easy Integration with Any Tripod /
The declination assembly uses a specialized Vixen-style saddle plate for attaching cameras, tripod heads, or optical tubes. Attaching a ball head to this Vixen style plate provides most users with enough flexibility to slew around the sky freely while maintaining tracking. The Star Adventurer tracking platform can attach to a tripod using a 3.8”-16 thread and includes an adapter for ¼”-20 thread sizes.
/ Automatic Shutter Release Control /
No need for an intervelometer timer with the Star Adventurer! With a completely programable shutter exposure settings, the Star Adventurer Mini can trigger a DSLR using the auxiliary shutter release cable. Once the camera is plugged into the mount and a shot is fired, it will continually shoot for the programed exposures until the cable is removed.
With a payload capacity of 3 kg (6.6 lbs), the Star Adventurer Mini is exceptional for nightscape photographers, traveling astronomers and anyone in need of a small tracking mount.
/ Customize your Setup /
In addition to the Star Adventurer Mini mount, several add-on accessories are available. The Equatorial base allows this platform to polar align and track in the RA axis, turning a conventional photo tripod into an important astrophotography tool. Both axis also feature clutches, allowing users to aim the Star Adventurer without losing polar alignment. For users photographing nightscapes, the optional ball-head adapter provides more freedom to frame image, while delivering consistent tracking.
Star Adventurer Ball Head Adapter USD15
The Star Adventurer Ball Head adapter provides a 3/8 threaded post to mount any ball of of choice to the Star Adventurer. The Ball Head adapter utilizes a stand V-style dovetail on the back for easy mounting to the Star Adventurer.

You must have the Dec. Bracket to use the Star Adventurer counter weight kit. The counter weight rod threads into the Dec. Bracket.
Star Adventurer Latitude (EQ) Base USD65
The Star Adventurer Latitude (EQ) Base provides a smooth and reliable way to polar align your mount. With internal gearing the Latitude Base makes aligning to the north celestial pole easy and repeatable.
The Latitude Base features a V-style dovetail system and mounting block.
