The AP Photo Guider is a lightweight Star Tracker for long exposure times in astrophotography. It has the same precise functions as the AP mount, but is easier to transport.
The AP Photo Guider comes with the STAR BOOK ONE controller and guarantees precise tracking during long exposure times.
It was developed in order to create razor-sharp images of the night sky with larger telephoto lenses.
The STAR BOOK ONE controller has different speeds, e.g. for the sun and the moon. It also features backlash compensation and PEC.
The STAR BOOK ONE features an Autoguider input for precise tracking accuracy during long exposure times. The newly developed polar finder provides an easy way to achieve polar alignment. Simply line up two reference stars with the markings in the reticle. This means that no hour angle settings are required.
