Introducing The SkyTrackerTM Pro
 
Upgraded from SkyTrackerTM, the Pro is more compact, small enough to fit on your palm, better precision, silent tracking, it even has a built-in rechargeable power source that runs for over 24 hours of continuous operation. The improved precision polar scope maintains a fine engraved reticule, now features adjustable illumination with eight brightness levels. Using with our smart phone app, quick and accurate polar alignment is just a joy. 
 
The SkyTrackerTM Pro features four tracking rates, 1X or sidereal, 1/2X for sky and landscape, solar and lunar. All 4 tracking rates work in both northern and southern hemispheres. We have also added a quick slew mode with both forward and reverse to help quickly reframing your image without disrupting the cameras position. 
 
We have made big improvements on the SkyTrackerTM Pro’s removable alt-azimuth base, which features a precision bubble level, degree markings for the altitude and a built in post for the azimuth control. You can also mount the SkyTrackerTM Pro head (without the base) directly to any standard photographic tripod with 1/4” or 3/8” threads. The SkyTrackerTM Pro is certainly a must have tool for any photographer interested in astroscape or wide field astrophotography.
 
SkyTracker really produces results fast: Customers regularly take astounding long exposure images with the SkyTracker, showing pinpoint stars and maximum detail. Even faint structure in deepsky objects is within your grasp. For example, see this amazing SkyTracker image of a spring galaxy cluster taken by UK Astro Photographer Francis Milsom. This shot clearly reveals detail within spiral galaxies with a DSLR camera and 100mm lens!
