This complete pro pack bundle includes the Precision Tracking Mount, Counterweight & Shaft, Equatorial Wedge and Dovetail L Bracket - simply attach to a standard camera tripod.

A simple to use high quality mount system with all the features needed for astro imaging and time lapse photography.
The best selling camera tracking mount
The Star Adventurer Pro Pack is by far the best selling camera tracking mount we sell, a superb innovation by SkyWatcher that makes astrophotography simple and affordable
The Star Adventurer imaging mount can attach to any standard tripod via its ¼" or 3/8" adaptors, we also stock the dedicated Star Adventurer Tripod ref 52309, see related accessories. The latitude can be set by either adjusting the tilt of your tripod head to match your latitude or more accurately with the included Equatorial Wedge. To fit a camera to the Star Adventurer, either a tripod Ball Head can be fitted (not supplied) or to the supplied Dovetail L-Bracket. The Dovetail L-Bracket used in conjunction with the supplied counterweight shaft/counterweight also allows small telescopes (e.g. 70mm - 80mm refractor), with a ¼-20 tripod fitting, to be used with the Star Adventurer. By dispensing with the counterweight shaft, a small telescope and camera (using a ball head, not supplied) can be mounted simultaneously on the Dovetail L-bracket. Using just the dovetail bar from the Dovetail L-Bracket, two cameras can be mounted at the same time using two tripod ball heads (not supplied).

Multiple set-up master! Received my star adventurer very quickly, even during the Christmas rush. It offers so many variations of set-up for camera(s) or small telescope. Love the way it's possible to mount a camera and counterweight and still have the ability to use the polar telescope. It's very well designed and built.

Excellent product and service I had got as far as I could with static astrophotography and needed to invest in a tracker. I did a lot of research and the Star Adventurer was closest to my requirements. Harrisons was the best price including delivery I could find anywhere. Delivered next day by standard delivery.

Excellent kit Received as Christmas present and only had the chance to use twice due to weather so far,due to time only had the chance to set up on basic alignment but tracking was impressive,good quality kit apart from battery cover which is not very secure.Used it with portable phone power pack which was ideal (09/01/2019) Sirbasil - Sussex
My best tracking yet! Received my Skywatcher Star Adventurer Pro Pack very quickly and managed to give a try. It performed better than expected and would easily recommend this to anyone getting starting into astrophotography.

Ideal kit for mobility As a birder with some long lenses and an interest in astrophotography this is the ideal way to utilise my birders kit. Have had a play and although photos were slightly out of focus there was no sign of trailing over 20 frames. Just need some good clear skies now. :) (02/01/2019) Ian Paterson - Jarrow
Fantastic portable piece of kit I brought this for it’s portability as I travel a lot. Very easy to setup and use, build quality is great. i got this for my dslr setup. And so far it’s been fantastic. Looking forward to my travel adventures with this kit. At home I have a 250p flextube dobby so not as portable. Highly recommended (14/12/2018) Matt Redding - Essex
Great Service Not had a chance to use yet but impressed with build quality and price. Have setup as best I can in the house and itching to get out and use it once the weather relaxes! Also impressed with Harrison's as I had a wee issue with one part. This was dealt with promptly and can't recommend them enough (09/11/2018) Nick - SW Scotland
Not used yet . The item arrived very promptly and well packaged.The instructions regarding polar alignment require some previous knowlege.As yet I have not had time or conditions to use it ,but I do look forward to doing so.I can only give 4 stars at present as it had not been used.

Excellent kit. Very well made product (apart from battery cover and polar illuminator). Been cloudy every night bar one since I got it but it worked well the one night I used it. Very pleased with it and the service from Ed. (17/09/2018) Nige - Lichfield
Star Adventurer Great product, takes my WO Telescope. Well pleased with Harrisons, have recommend them. Robin Durant, Ho. Chair, Adur Astronomical Society (14/09/2018) Robin Durant - Brighton
Solid product Astronomy and photography are my main hobbies, but I've never combined them aside from dabbling with a motorised EQ1. This is an entirely different beast. Great results on the first night out - 60 second subs came easily at 200mm. Service was great too, it took less than 18 hours to reach me! (17/08/2018) Jamie - Fordingbridge
Skywatcher Star Adventurer Pro Pack Very pleased with Skywatcher Star Adventurer Pro. Well made and easy to set up and to mount my DSLR camera to it in different configurations. Tracking is very good once polar aligned i got no star trailing with the 4 min expoures. (20/07/2018) Kevin - Bexley
Good Solid Item I have not yet had the chance to use this in the field but I have had time to set it up and check the operation. It is well constructed and is pretty solid on my tripod. The dovetail bracket is really handy as I can use two DSLR's at the same that can point at different places towards the sky. (27/04/2018) Chris Ball - Pembrokeshire
Pinpoint Stars I finally had a couple of hours with clear skies, and this rig didn't disappoint. I had never polar aligned a mount before, and was a little intimidated. However, with a couple tutorials, and an app, I was able to algin Polaris. Ran 3min subs with pinpoint stars, and one for 9min with great results. (04/04/2018) Mr. TH - Colchester
