Description

The Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer Mini Wi-Fi (SAM) is a compact high-precision camera tracking platform that is ideal for long exposure astrophotography as well as time-lapse photography in daytime and night time settings. SAM easily fits in your backpack or camera bag, making it a convenient travel companion that can venture with you into remote locations.

SAM comes with built-in WiFi and the free Star Adventurer Mini Console App for Android and iOS platforms allowing it to be remotely controlled with your smartphone. SAM is easy to set up and to operate in all of its modes.

Although capable of supporting larger camera lenses, SAM is ideal and very simple to use for Widefield Astrophotography with a standard camera lens of 55mm or shorter focal length, as only a rough polar alignment is necessary, making it ideal for all kinds of amateur photographers unfamiliar with astronomy. 

Star Adventurer Mini Wi-Fi (SAM PRO PACK): includes the Star Adventurer Mini Wi-Fi (SAM) mount, ball head adaptor, polarscope, polarscope illuminator, equatorial wedge and dovetail L-bracket. Sky-Watcher shutter release cables can be purchased separately for most popular camera models/brands.

The Star Adventurer Mini Wi-Fi can attach to any standard tripod via its ¼” or 3/8” adaptors. The latitude can be set by either adjusting the tilt of your tripod head to match your latitude or more accurately by using the supplied Equatorial Wedge. To fit a camera to the Star Adventurer, either a tripod Ball Head is required (not supplied) or the supplied Dovetail L-Bracket. The Dovetail L-Bracket can be used in conjunction with the optional counterweight shaft/counterweight (available separately).
