What is one of the requirements for good quality, tracked astrophotographs?
The simple answer: a well-aligned mount.
You probably know this misery: You put your mount on the tripod and try to arrange it freehand with a normal ball head. Not an easy task. Especially when it is dark and maybe cold.
Make it easier for yourself and simply exclude the largest source of error. With the pole height cradle, you can set the pole height and azimuth angle as precisely as with a large telescope. You can achieve the precision you need.
Two screws are used for an exact adjustment of the azimuth. Especially when you have almost reached the pole, but only a small way in the right direction is missing. After the adjustment you can fix the polar height cradle.
Tilt angle -35 to 70 °
At home or on your travels: with the Polhöhenwiege for minitrack and other travel assemblies you are well prepared for your travels. Iceland or rather Namibia: Wherever you go, great astrophotographs are possible in many places.
- Setting between -35. and 70th latitude possible
- Easy-to-use lever for fixation
For the pole alignment, an exactly straight setup is important. It's nice when it's really easy: with the spirit level of the polar cradle.
