Since its introduction the Star Adventurer has been at the forefront of the lightweight, portable astro-imaging revolution. And now, with the Star Adventurer GTi, we take the next step with full Go-To performance in a compact package.

The exciting new Star Adventurer GTi features a built-in illuminated polar scope for precision alignment, interfaces for USB, autoguider, optional SynScan hand controller, and SNAP shutter control for your DSLR (programmable via Sky-Watcher’s free SynScan Pro app for iOS and Android). The Star Adventurer GTi also includes a dual-position counterweight for use at low latitudes as well as full smartphone control via Wi-Fi. 

With the added Go-To feature plus multiple tracking rates including lunar, solar, and sidereal, the heavens are yours to capture and explore.

With its 5kg payload capacity, the Star Adventurer GTi is well-equipped to handle your DLSR or mirrorless camera sporting a wide-angle or telephoto lens plus accessories, a small aperture astrograph with a dedicated astronomy camera, or simply an OTA for visual use via its 45mm dovetail saddle.

The Star Adventurer GTi is the perfect mount for the astro-photographer that wants the ultimate in both performance and portability.

(The Star Adventurer GTi is also available complete with tripod and pier extension, code 20327).
