Product information "BRESSER HD Moon & Planetary Camera & Guider 1.25""
Enter the world of astrophotography now. With the new BRESSER HD moon and planet camera with ST4 autoguider function.

This camera is very good for astrophotography with short exposure times, i.e. for celestial objects like the moon, planets or star clusters. For astrophotography with long exposure times for low light deep sky objects, like galaxies and gas nebulae, we recommend the BRESSER Full HD Deep-Sky Camera (Art. No. 4959050) instead, with it's even higher resolution and sensor sensitivity.

Equipped with the new high-sensitivity SONY IMX225 CMOS colour sensor, the BRESSER HD moon and planet camera delivers amazing image results with very short exposure times, even with simple telescope equipment. In addition, this ultra-modern camera can also be used as an autoguider, e.g. to actively track the main imaging device with SLR or CCD astro camera. A universal CMOS colour camera that delivers super-sharp lunar and planetary images in particular.

The particularly low noise level of this new chip generation from SONY, ensures an exceptionally high brilliance and no cooling is required. Due to the high native pixel resolution of 1280x980, together with suitable telescopes, very beautiful images of the moon, but also detailed planetary images are possible.

The ToupSky pro software included in the scope of delivery not only offers the necessary basic functions for image and video recording, but also many helpful special functions for image post-processing and for setting up the Guider. Functions such as live image display, exposure settings, white balance, dark image capture, stacking, timelapse recordings and much more can be individually configured. Especially the very sophisticated software makes it really easy for you to get started in astrophotography. With the automatic settings, you can produce absolutely presentable results without much prior knowledge. If you wish, simply switch off the automatic settings and gradually venture into the individual professional settings.

Connect the camera directly to the ST4 connector of your telescope mount and you have fully automatic tracking control. This makes long exposures of several minutes possible without the stars producing unwanted line marks due to the ever-present synchronisation fluctuations of a telescope mount. A corresponding ST-4 connection cable is even included with the camera. Due to the high light sensitivity of the camera, you will always find a suitable guide star even with very short exposure times. For connection to guide tubes or off-axis guiders, the camera has a 1.25" plug-in sleeve, 1.25" filter thread (M28.5x0.6) and C-mount thread (1 "x1/32").

IMPORTANT NOTES:

This is not a stand-alone guider camera. You always need a Windows 10 / 11 computer to take pictures and for autoguiding.

The autoguider software is not included. You can use PHD2 Guiding, Guidedog, Metaguide, Guidemaster (freeware) or AstroArt, MaxIm DL (paid).

Planetary UV + IR Cut Filter for BRESSER CMOS Cameras
The BRESSER UV + IR Cut Filter makes lunar and planetary images even sharper.Digital astro cameras have a wide sensitivity range that significantly exceeds the spectrum of visible light. Thus, the wavelengths of invisible light in the ultraviolet and infrared are also captured. This leads inevitably to a small additional and of course unwanted blur. The solution is this UV + IR Cut Filter, which allows only light in the visible range 400 nm to 680 nm to pass through and blocks all other wavelengths of light. As soon as these disturbing light waves are cut off, the sharpness of the image and the contrast are increased. Suddenly, details on the surface of Jupiter, for example, can be seen that were previously only barely visible. A clear plus, which can be achieved by this filter.Suitable for BRESSER CMOS cameras and other manufacturers with female camera thread M30 x 0.75 mmAfter removing the original screw adapter with sensor protection glass, the BRESSER UV + IR Cut filter is mounted to the camera instead. This filter has a fine M30 x 0.75 mm external thread for mounting on the camera. The exchange is therefore quick and easy. On the opposite side, i.e. on the telescope side, there is a standard C-mount female thread for mounting other accessories. Note: This filter does not have a standard 1.25 inch (31.7 mm) filter thread.

BRESSER Barlow Lens 2x 31.8mm/1.25"
With the usage of barlow lenses, you can extend the equivalent focal length of telescopes and hence increase the magnification of your observed targets. Subsequently, you can use lower power eyepieces in Barlows to act as much more powerful eyepieces, but retain the larger ocular size and more comfortable viewing that comes with lower power eyepiece designs.Due to their two lens design, these Barlow lenses provide a brilliant image quality for the whole visual field and are suitable for observations and photography.  The black coloured Barlow element cell in this BRESSER Barlow Lens 2x 31.8mm/1.25," can be unscrewed and has the same thread as 1.25" filters, allowing it to be mounted in 1.25" eyepieces, t-adapters and other accessories, giving you flexibility of use and the ability to vary magnification in different accessories.  For instance, the black Barlow cell screwed into the average length nosepiece of a standard push fit t-adapter will give around 1.6x magnification on an attached DSLR.  This can be very useful when trying to get to photographic focus with some Newtonians and Solar Telescopes, which lack the necessary amount of in focus travel to get a camera to a prime focus position.FEATURESsuitable for observations and photographydoubling of the focal lengthtwo lens designfully multi-coatedWHAT'S INCLUDEDBarlow lens (1pc)

EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC Deep Sky Astro Camera 16MP
High resolution deep sky camera with large Panasonic CMOS sensor and active cooling. Enter the world of astrophotography now. With the new EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC DEEP SKY ASTRO camera you get a modern complete package for the comfortable shooting of astro photos and videos. Finally, an easy-to-use camera for capturing galaxies, star clusters, the moon and even planets with high resolution and low sensor noise. Thanks to the fast USB 3.0 computer interface, all image data is transferred within a few seconds. Long waiting times are now history. Simply connect the camera to your telescope using the T2 female thread (M42.0.75mm) or the supplied 2" (50.8mm) plug-in adapter and after installing the drivers and the included EXPLORE Capture recording and editing software, you are ready to take the first real astro photos with a highly specialized camera for your application.  The EXPLORE Capture Pro software included in delivery not only offers the basic functions required for image and video capture, but also many helpful special functions for image post-processing and camera setup. Functions such as live image display, exposure settings, white balance, dark image print, stacking, timelapse recording and much more can be configured individually. Especially the very sophisticated software makes your entry into astrophotography really easy. With the automatic settings you can produce absolutely presentable results without any previous knowledge. If you like, simply switch off the automatic settings and gradually dare to adjust the individual professional settings. The new EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC DEEP SKY camera has a highly sensitive and very low-noise Panasonic CMOS sensor which is additionally cooled down to 40°C below ambient temperature by the two-stage thermoelectric cooling. In contrast to normal DSLR cameras, this guarantees much lower noise and fewer hot pixels in your shots. The images are not only much sharper and more brilliant, but also contain more usable image information. Through the controlled setting of the desired camera temperature, the creation of dark frames under reproducible shooting conditions is possible at any time. The large-format CMOS sensor with 21.9mm diagonal also allows large image fields and simplifies the adjustment and centering of objects considerably. The camera has a built-in USB hub with 2 x USB2.0 ports at the rear. Connect your additional autoguider camera or motor focus etc. via a short USB cable and reduce the risk of cable spaghetti and cable breaks. Separate cable connections between your accessories and your computer are no longer necessary. A sturdy hard case for the camera plus accessories is also included. IMPORTANT NOTES: Don't get confused by the megapixel data and the contrary price structure. In the field of astronomy, the key criterion is not the sensor resolution but the maximum light sensitivity. The main goal is to capture as much light as possible in a short time.DOWNLOAD latest camera software and drivers see download folder "Manuals" or here: http://www.touptek.com/download/showdownload.php?lang=en&id=2 Sample photos made by Lóránd Fényes in Hungary: https://fenyeslorand.hu/asztrofotok/Field of view for different focal lengths in arc minutes and degrees: 400 mm - 151´x 114´ (2.5 x 1.9 degrees) 500 mm - 121´x 91´ (2.0 x 1.5 degrees) 600 mm - 101´x 76´ (1.7 x 1.3 degrees) 700 mm - 86´x 65´ (1.4 x 1.1 degrees) 800 mm - 76´x 57´ (1.3 x 0.9 degrees) 900 mm - 67´x 51´ (1.1 x 1.9 degrees) 1000 mm - 61´x 46´ (1.0 x 0.8 degrees) 1250 mm - 48´x 37´ (0.8 x 0.6 degrees) 1500 mm - 40´x 30´ (0.7 x 0.5 degrees) 1750 mm - 35´x 26´ (0.6 x 0.4 degrees) 2000 mm - 30´x 23´ (0.5 x 0.4 degrees) FEATUREScamera type: ASTRO Camera 16.0MP ATR3CMOS16000KPA data output: single pictures and video image Sensor: Panasonic NM34230PLI CMOS Color Sensor adjustable resolution: 4648x3506 / 2304x1750 / 1536x1168 adjustable binning: 1x1 / 2x2 / 3x3 frame rate per second (FBS): 22.5 / 43 / 48 physical sensor size in pixels: 4648 x 3506 megapixel: 16 MP sensor size: 17.6 x 13.3 mm (4/3 inch) pixel size: 3.8 µm x 3.8 µm bit depth: 12 Bit backfocus: 17,5 mm  shutter Type: rolling shutterinternal camera memory: DDR 3 RAMthermoelectric cooling with fan: yes, up to 40°C below ambient temperature adjustable exposure times: 150µs to 60min operating temperature: -10 to +50°C (30-80% RLH) cable length USB 3.0: 150cm DC cable length power supply: 200cm CNC machined aluminium housing camera diameter: 80mm; length: 102mm camera weight: 0,53 kg camera connection diameter: 2.0 inch ( 50.8mm) camera connection thread: T2 (M42x0,75mm) filter thread: Yes, 2.0 inch in receptacle camera connection to PC: USB 3.0 built-in USB hub with 2 x USB 2.0 ports power supply: Power supply 12 Volt 3,0 Ampere included software: EXPLORE Capture included camera driver and ASCOM driver includedoperating system: WINDOWS 10 + 11 PC requirements: CPU Intel Core2 2.8Ghz or higher / 2 GB Ram / USB 3.0 SCOPE OF DELIVERYDEEP SKY ASTRO Camera 16.0MP telescope adapter T2 thread to 2.0" (50,8mm) USB 3.0 connection cable 150cm power supply 230V/12V3,0A dust cap software CD hard case instruction manual

EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC Deep Sky Astro Camera 26MP
High resolution deep sky camera with large SONY EXMOR IMX-571 APS-C CMOS sensor and active cooling. This camera's extreme sensitivity is achieved through SONYs backside illumination technology. This camera should appeal to both advanced users and those looking to move up from DSLRs for more serious deep sky imaging.Enter the world of astrophotography now. With the new EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC Deep Sky Astro camera you get a modern complete package for straightforward shooting of astro photos and videos. Finally, an easy-to-use camera for capturing galaxies, star clusters, the moon and even planets with high resolution and low sensor noise. Thanks to the fast USB 3.0 computer interface, all image data is transferred within a few seconds. Long waiting times for images are now history. Simply connect the camera to your telescope using the T2 female thread (M42, 0.75 mm) or the supplied 2" (50.8 mm) plug-in adapter and after installing the drivers and the included EXPLORE Capture recording and editing software, you are ready to take the first real astro photos with a highly specialized camera for your application.  The EXPLORE Capture Pro software included in this package not only offers the basic functions required for image and video capture, but also many helpful special functions for image post-processing and camera setup. Functions such as live image display, exposure settings, white balance, dark image subtraction, stacking, timelapse recording and much more can be configured individually. This very sophisticated software makes your entry into astrophotography really easy. With the automatic settings you can produce absolutely presentable results without any previous knowledge. As soon as you feel confident, simply switch off the automatic settings and gradually explore the software's more individual professional settings. The new EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC Deep Sky camera has a highly sensitive and very low-noise SONY EXMOR IMX-571 APS-C CMOS Sensor, which can be cooled down to 40 °C below ambient temperature by the two-stage thermoelectric cooling. In contrast to normal DSLR cameras, this guarantees much lower noise and fewer hot pixels in your shots. The images are not only much sharper and more brilliant, but also contain more usable image information. Through the carefully automatically-controlled setting of the desired camera temperature, the it's easy to create of dark frames which can be re-used under similar shooting conditions - speeding up your processing considerably. The large-format CMOS sensor with 28.3 mm diagonal also allows large image fields and simplifies the adjustment and centering of objects considerably. The secret to the high light sensitivity of this camera is SONY's new back illuminated EXMOR CMOS sensor. It increases the quantum efficiency to up to 80 % at 533 nm, which leads to an extremely high sensitivity and subsequently particularly bright and high-contrast photos.The camera has a built-in USB hub with 2 x USB 2.0 ports at the rear. Connect your additional autoguider camera or motor focus etc. via a short USB cable and reduce the risk of cable tangles and cable breaks. Separate cable connections between your accessories and your computer are no longer necessary. A sturdy hard case for the camera plus accessories is also included. IMPORTANT NOTES: Don't get confused by the megapixel data and the contrary price structure. In the field of astronomy, the key criterion is not the sensor resolution but the maximum light sensitivity. The main goal is to capture as much light as possible in a short time.DOWNLOAD latest camera software and drivers see download folder "Manuals" or here: http://www.touptek.com/download/showdownload.php?lang=en&id=2 Sample photos made by Lóránd Fényes in Hungary: https://fenyeslorand.hu/m31/https://fenyeslorand.hu/ic349_merope_nebula/https://fenyeslorand.hu/asztrofotok/Field of view for different focal lengths in arc minutes and degrees: 400 mm - 201´ x 135´  (3.4 x 2.3 degrees)500 mm - 161´ x 108´  (2.7 x 1.8 degrees)600 mm - 134´ x 90´  (2.2 x 1.5 degrees)700 mm - 115´ x 77´  (1.9 x 1.3 degrees)800 mm - 100´ x 67´  (1.7 x 1.1 degrees)900 mm -  89´ x 60´  (1.5 x 1.0 degrees)1000 mm - 80´ x 54´  (1.3 x 0.9 degrees)1250 mm - 64´ x 43´  (1.1 x 0.7 degrees)1500 mm - 53´ x 36´  (0.9 x 0.6 degrees)1750 mm - 46´ x 31´  (0.8 x 0.5 degrees)2000 mm - 40´ x 27´  (0.7 x 0.45 degrees)FEATURESCamera type: ASTRO Colour Camera 26.0MP ATR3CMOS16000KPA Data output: single pictures and video Image Sensor: SONY EXMOR IMX-571 CMOS Colour Sensor Adjustable resolution: 6224x4168 / 3104x2084 / 2064x1386 Adjustable binning: 1x1 / 2x2 / 3x3 Frame rate per second (FBS): 6.8 / 28 / 63 Physical sensor size in pixels: 6224 x 4168diaginal: 28.3 mmMegapixel: 26 MP Sensor size: 23.48 x 15.67 mm (APS-C format)Pixel size: 3.76 µm x 3.76 µm Bit depth: 8 Bit / 16 BitBackfocus: 17.5 mm  Shutter Type: rolling shutterInternal camera memory: 512MB DDR 3 RAMThermoelectric cooling with fan: yes, up to 40°C below ambient temperature Adjustable exposure times: 150µs to 60min Operating temperature: -10 to +50°C (30-80% RLH) Cable length USB 3.0: 150cm DC cable length power supply: 200cm CNC machined aluminium housing Camera diameter: 80mm; length: 102mm Camera weight: 0.53 kg Camera connection diameter: 2.0 inch ( 50.8mm) Camera connection thread: T2 (M42x0,75mm) Filter thread: Yes, 2.0 inch in receptacle Camera connection to PC: USB 3.0 Built-in USB hub with 2 x USB 2.0 ports Power supply: Power supply 12 Volt 3,0 Ampere included Software: EXPLORE Capture included Camera driver and ASCOM driver includedOperating system: WINDOWS 10 + 11 PC requirements: CPU Intel Core2 2.8Ghz or higher / 2 GB Ram / USB 3.0 WHAT'S INCLUDEDDeep Sky Astro Camera 26.0MP Telescope adapter T2 thread to 2.0" (50,8mm) USB 3.0 connection cable 150cm Power supply 230V/12V 3.0A Dust cap Software CD Hard case Instruction manual

EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC 4K DEEP SKY ASTRO Camera & Guider 8,3 MP II
Enter the world of astrophotography now - with the new EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC 4K DEEP SKY ASTRO Camera including ST4 autoguider function. This is truly new: Equipped with the new high-sensitive SONY IMX585 Exmor CMOS colour sensor, this astronomy camera delivers amazing image results with extremely short exposure times even with basic telescope equipment. In addition, this ultra-modern camera can also be used as an autoguider, e.g. to actively track the main imaging device with an SLR or CCD astro camera. An all-round camera that delivers super-sharp and high-resolution planetary images. The high 4K resolution of 3840x2160 pixels guarantees the best possible image result. Sensor The secret to the high light sensitivity is SONY's new back illuminated Exmor CMOS sensor. It increases the quantum efficiency to up to 77 % at 533 nm, which leads to an extremely high light sensitivity and thus particularly bright and high-contrast photos. In addition, the particularly low noise level of this new CMOS sensor generation by SONY ensures exceptionally high brilliance and no active cooling is required. Nevertheless, this astro camera has an elaborate internal structure made of aluminium for ideal heat radiation and a fan that can be switched on via software. When used with suitable telescopes, the high native pixel resolution of 3840x2160 enables very nice overview images of the moon, but also detailed planetary images. Solar Imaging This camera is also recommended for solar astro-photography. Especially the Lunt LS40 THa solar telescopes (item No. 0551145/0551146/0551147), with their short focal length, allow in combination with this planetary camera with its large sensor great overview images of the sun. Important Note: When observing and taking photos of the sun, always use a suitable protective solar filter or a special solar telescope. Otherwise there is a risk of immediate blindness and damage to the camera. Software The included Explore Capture professional software offers not only the necessary basic functions for image and video capture, but also many helpful special functions for image post-processing and for setting up the guider. Functions such as live image display, exposure settings, white balance, dark image capture, stacking, timelapse recording and much more can be configured individually. Especially the very sophisticated software makes it really easy for you to get started in astrophotography. With the automatic settings you can produce absolutely presentable results without a lot of prior knowledge. And when you are ready, simply switch off the automatic settings and gradually venture into the individual professional settings. Automatic tracking control Connect the camera directly to the ST4 port of your telescope mount and you have a fully automatic tracking control. Thus, long exposures of several minutes are possible without the stars producing unwanted star traces due to the always existing periodic error of the telescope mount gears. A corresponding ST-4 connection cable is even included in the camera's scope of delivery. Because of the high light sensitivity of the camera, you will always find a suitable guide star even with very short exposure times. Simple automatic tracking at its best. Connection For the connection to telescopes, guiding scopes or off-axis guiders the camera has a 1.25'' socket with 1.25'' filter thread (M28.5x0.6) and a large T2 connection thread (M42x0.75) directly on the housing. IMPORTANT NOTES: This is not a stand-alone guider camera. You always need a Windows 10 or 11 computer to take pictures and for autoguiding. The autoguider software is not included. You can use PHD2 Guiding, GuideDog, Metaguide, Guidemaster (freeware) or AstroArt, MaxIm DL (paid).

Who hasn't dreamed of a trip to the stars? The BRESSER Space Explorer MC 90/1250 automatic telescope will take you on an exciting journey into space. The telescope is easy to use, even for beginners - after aligning with one, two or three stars, you can choose an object from the 270,000 pre-installed celestial objects. Whether you want to observe a fascinating gas planet or a bright deep-sky object, the telescope will automatically move to your desired target. Thanks to the built-in motors in both axes of the azimuthal mount, the target object is automatically tracked so that you can sit back and enjoy the night sky. Explore the night sky with the Maksutov telescope Featuring a long focal length of 1250 mm, this telescope is ideal for making exciting discoveries in the solar system and beyond. Take a close look at the gas clouds on Jupiter, or watch the rings of Saturn through the telescope for the first time with your own eyes. Thanks to the 90 mm aperture, the telescope collects about 165 times more light than the human eye. However, it's not just the planets that look stunning through the high-quality optics. It's also worth venturing further afield into space: marvel at the sight of the Orion Nebula, 1,344 light years from Earth, or the famous Ring Nebula M57 in the constellation Lyra. The two included eyepieces with 25 mm and 12.5 mm focal lengths will show you these objects and many others at 50 or 100 times magnification. And because the best observation spots are usually not found in your immediate vicinity, the telescope features a compact Cassegrain design for easy transport. If there is a stable table at your observation site, you can even leave the tripod at home. Everything you need for exploring the night sky The telescope also allows you to capture images of the night sky. Simply attach the smartphone holder to the eyepiece, and take snapshots of planets, open star clusters and other night sky objects. The telescope is also ideal for observing and taking photos of the moon. In order to comfortably watch Earth's natural satellite through your Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope, it is best to use the included moon filter. The moon filter darkens the image slightly and increases the contrast to provide a more comfortable view. Perfect for exploring fascinating moon craters, lunar seas and shadows in the twilight zone! The telescope also comes with a star chart to help you navigate the night sky with its mythically named constellations.

EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC Ultra Light Dobsonian 305mm GENERATION II
Ultra Light Dobsonian 305mm GENERATION II - with completely redesigned and improved construction.No telescope type has influenced amateur astronomy as radically as the dobsonian telescope. Before the introduction of this telescope type by John Dobson the vast majority of amateur telescopes were small inadequate refractors on shaky mounts - just good enough to show the polar regions on mars or the rings of Saturn. Bigger telescopes, like the Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes, were restricted to the relatively small group of amateurs that could afford them.The brilliant combination of simple - but effective - mechanics and the largest aperture available led to a worldwide triumph of this concept. No other telescope type offers you so much light for your money as a good dobson. We have taken the motto "held together by gravity and driven by yoghurt power" and offer a modern version of the classic - designed by amateur astronomers for amateur astronomers. Despite its large aperture the telescope can be transported easily even in small cars and is assembled within minutes without tools. The construction was optimized for maximum rigidity with a minimum of mass. The combination of big altitude wheels and a optimized aluminium-sandwich construction allows for small movements even at high magnifications. The focus position is already positioned to accept our coma-corrector. The ideal workhorse for the deep-sky enthusiast. A telescope with 305mm aperture gathers more than 1800-times more light than the naked eye. Details on planetary surfaces stand out even to unexperienced observers, and countless deep-sky objects show details. Bright globular clusters are resolved down to the core and the view of the lunar terminator will provide a unforgettable experience.Dimensions for mobile use: Rockerbox 450mmx450mmx320mm; Mirrorbox 380mmx380mmx300mm; Trusses approx. 980mmEyepiece Height while pointing at zenith approximately 1,4m.12“ Net total weight: 32,1 kg; 12“ Mirror Box: 18,9 kg; 12“ Secondary cage +Rockerbox: 10 kg; 12“ 4 Pairs of trusses: 1,8kg; 12“ Altitude Wheels: 1,4kg ; Focuser thread: M54 x 0.75 mm ; Backfocus: 45mm behind the 2" eyepiece holder. 35mm when the 1.25" adapter is mountedSPECIFICATIONS Truss-Dobsonian Telescope in full Aluminium constructionNEW: Slider bearings made from TEFLON und GFK for smooth and precise movementNEW: Improved main mirror cell with completely redesigned mechanicsNEW: Altitude bearings with new designed brake and friction systemNEW: Larger feet to improve stabilityNEW: Universal finder slot to enable an easy finder upgradeNEW: Counter-weight system included - 2 x 1.0 kg NEW: Quick-lock fasteners with new springloaded design for comfortable useNEW: Powder-coated yellow altitude wheels to improve durabilityNEW: Laser engraved central mark on main mirrorSCOPE OF DELIVERYTruss Dobsonian TelescopeLED finder with standard finder slotStray light shield for secondary cageMain mirror collimation toolBattery compartment with bag for fansCounter-weights 2 x 1.0 kgExtension tube for focuserReducer 2"/1.25"Manual

BRESSER StarTracker Astronomical Photo Mount Kit
Do you already own a photo camera and would like to create impressive pictures of the night sky with the help of the long exposure or even make time-lapse pictures with little effort? The BRESSER StarTracker Astronomical Photo Mount Kit is the ideal base. Not only for beginners in astrophotography, this mount is particularly well suited, but also the experts swear by a compact and easy-to-use mount to automatically compensate for the natural rotation of the earth. The built-in tracking motor rotates the saddle-mounted camera precisely against the earth's rotation and thus the stars remain in pinpoint shape even with long exposures. This set contains all the components required for a quick and comfortable entry into the world of astrophotography with the exception of a camera and objective lens: A stable BRESSER tripod TP-100 DX with carrying bag, the BRESSER Micro Motion Head MH-100 (polar-wedge), the BRESSER Polar Finder Scope for StarTracker PM-100 and of course the BRESSER StarTracker astrophoto mount PM-100 with ball head.Which cameras are basically suitable for use with the BRESSER photo mount? All cameras with 1/4'' (6.3mm) tripod connection thread and bulb length B for long exposure are suitable. The BRESSER StarTracker Astronomical Photo Mount PM-100 is designed for a camera with lens of max. 2.0 kg total weight to carry and track in polar mode. In Azimut mode also a camera weight up to 5.0kg is possible.  Large aperture, wide-angle lenses are ideal for the beginning, because the requirements for tracking accuracy accumulate with increasing focal length and exposure time. Thus, a shot with wide-angle lens can be exposed for up to several minutes and the stars remain punctiform without problems. For example, with a 200mm telephoto lens the polar alignment of the photo mount must be exactly right. But thanks to the delievered optical Polar Finder Scope, this is done quickly. After setting up the light and compact StarTracker Photo Mount, simply set the approximate latitude (pole height) and aim Polaris through the integrated Polar Finder Scope. Then mount the camera with the photo lens using the quick-release plate on the supplied ball head. With the ball head, the camera can be aligned and determined at any time on any section of the sky. As soon as the tracking motor is switched on, long-time exposure can be started immediately. This does not even take 5 minutes ... The tracking is carried out by a precise stepper motor, which can be controlled by an easy digital setup on LCD screen. Low power consumption allows up to 20 hours of operation with just one battery charge or simply use the micro USB port for an unlimited power supply. Typically achievable exposure times with good tracking accuracy are: 16mm wide-angle lens: 5 minutes (300 sec.) , 100mm telephoto lens: 1 minute (60 sec.) FEATURES StarTracker Astronomical Photo Mount Kit Equatorial StarTracker Photo-MountAutomatic siderial tracking against the Earth rotation  Different tracking speed setting possible Suitable for northern and southern henisphere Time lapse: from 15 minutes to 48 hours Ballhead with quick release saddle plate and 1/4'' Photo thread for Kamera mountingPhoto-Mount with 1/4'' threaded bolt for ballhead mounting Additional quick release coupling for ball head removal High precision stepper motor with helical gear for accurate tracking Clear LCD screen and easy setup menu Battery operation 4 x AA batteries or mico USB (optional acc.)  Battery life: up to 20 hours Weight Photo-Mont: 0.63kgTransport weight incl. complete accessories: 3.6 kg Adjustment height mount with tripod: 80-155cm Tripod transport dimensions: 60x10x10cm; tripod weight: 2,1 kg Load capacity of Photo-Mount: up to 2.0kg/5.0kg (EQ/AZ) SCOPE OF DELIVERY BRESSER StarTracker astronomical Photo-Mount PM-100BRESSER Ballhead with quick release saddle plateBRESSER Polar Finder Scope for StarTracker PM-100BRESSER Micro Motion Head MH-100 (Polar-Wedge)BRESSER Tripod TP-100 DX with carry bag User manual
