The Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer Mini Wi-Fi (SAM Pro Pack) 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. Simply attach to a good camera tripod or the dedicated Star Adventurer tripod listed in related accessories and start imaging the night sky.
Wi-Fi control from your phone
The SAM pro pack 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.
