Product Details

  • The iOptron SkyGuider Pro Camera Mount Full Package is iOptron's answer to the massively popular realm of DSLR astrophotography while still being perfectly equipped to handle smaller telescopes as well. Since its release, this camera tracker has been a favorite among astronomy and astrophotography communities due to its extremely compact size, ease of use, and surprisingly affordable price. All that you need to get started in wide-field astrophotography is a camera, a tripod, and the iOptron SkyGuider Pro.

    Portable Plug-and-Play

    Redesigned from the original blueprint, the current model of iOptron's SkyGuider Pro is made to fit in the palm of your hand while having better tracking, more precision in alignment, and operate with near silence. This device also has a built-in power source that is rechargeable, a standard ST-4 guiding port, and a camera trigger port to streamline the whole process. Never before has getting into astrophotography been easier than it is now, thanks to iOptron. Just set it up, check your bubble level, align with the smartphone app, and you’re good to go!

    Improved Tracking

    Featuring a respectable four tracking rates, the SkyGuider is well-suited to most imaging sessions we could ever want. Each rate also functions in both northern and southern hemispheres with no problems at all, and, to make this even better, a quick slew mode is available for both forward and reverse directions to re-frame without disrupting the camera position.

    An Adaptable System

    Would you prefer to use a manufacturer's hand controller instead of your phone to control this? That is available. Can you attach your own camera mount head to the SkyGuider Pro? Yes. One of the main qualities of iOptron is their attention to how varied customers’ needs can be. This camera tracker mount is well-adapted to work with nearly every camera setup that an astrophotographer would bring out into the field.

Instant improvement

I live in Chicago. Imaging stars is hard here. Follow them like your shadow does you with THIS. Instant image improvement. Polar alignment = ez. 2 minute setup.

Super happy with purchase

Ioptron skyguider pro. I’m just learning astrophotography and I love the skyguider pro. OPT shipped it quick and I got it sooner than expected. I live in Vancouver, Canada and it went smooth and quick.

IOptron SkyGuider Pro

I was able to be up and running the first night with the SkyGuider. The tracking was good for 90sec subs with 200mm lens. My only problems were with finding and framing the object. Fine adjustment was difficult. I have upgraded to a “ball head” to help solve that problem. So with a good tripod and a ball head it’s as good as it gets. Next I’ll try my ED80 in place of my Canon T3i and a guider. Very impressed with the rapid shipping and follow up by OPT. Lauren Chapple TC, Michigan

Great tool for the price

Purchased the iOptron Sky Guider Pro during the Summer of 2020. I've enjoyed the fun. Just wish we had more clear nights in S.W. Michigan. I purchased the unit with the iPolar installed which really helps me with an older body and eyes. I use it with my Canon 5DM4 and a William Optics Z61 II. I took the attached photo of NGC 7000 this past Tues early AM. There were 45 frames at 120 sec each (plus darks, bias & flat frames)

So far so good! Great build quality and easy to use.

The build quality seems excellent so far. I've only had one clear night since I got it. I was able to polar align and get 1 minute exposures no problem. The resulting image was fantastic! I'm going to try for 2 and then 3 minute exposures next time I get a clear night.
