This compact and affordable fully GoTo and motorized tabletop altazimuth mount package provides easy, fully robotic locating and tracking of celestial objects. After connecting the included SynScan Wi-Fi adapter to the mount and completing a simple connection procedure, the Orion StarBlast AutoTracker Altazimuth Mount can be fully controlled by your iOS or Android smartphone or tablet! It will precisely find, center and track thousands of celestial objects in the database of the free SynScan Pro app. And with the luxury of automatic tracking, you can concentrate on observing night sky objects instead of constantly reorienting your telescope as the target object drifts out of your telescope's field-of-view. Observing a given object for longer periods allows you to discern more subtle features and details as you relax at the eyepiece without having to worry about manually repositioning the telescope to keep the object in sight.

The StarBlast AutoTracker Mount is equipped with a dovetail telescope attachment saddle, making it compatible with a wide variety of telescope optical tubes and narrow dovetail mounting plates. The AutoTracker Mount works with telescopes weighing up to 9 lbs. (including accessories), and the center of its dovetail saddle is positioned 7.2" above the mount's bottom panel to provide clearance for many optical tube lengths.

It's easy to align the StarBlast AutoTracker Altazimuth Mount using the included SynScan Wi-Fi adapter and SynScan Pro app on your phone or tablet. After downloading the free SynScan Pro app from the App Store (for iOS) or Google Play (for Android) onto your device, you join the SynScan Wi-Fi network on your phone or tablet and hit "Connect" on the app's opening screen. It's a simple matter of aligning to a few reference points, and the software takes care of the rest. All of this can be done away from cell service or Wi-Fi networks, as the SynScan Wi-Fi adapter creates its own Wi-Fi hotspot, and does not require cell or data connections to any other network. A perfect portable solution for taking out camping away from civilization and light pollution!

On top of automated tracking, the StarBlast AutoTracker Altazimuth Mount also features camera cruising functionality. This allows you to attach a Canon DSLR camera to the Mount and take time-lapse photos, panoramic photos, and even take snapshots at select positions as the AutoTracker moves the attached Canon DSLR camera.

Outfitted with an assortment of useful accessories, the StarBlast AutoTracker Altazimuth Mount includes an L-bracket with a captive 1/4"-20 threaded post for easy attachment of small telescopes, video cameras, and DLSR and point-and-shoot cameras. An included L-bracket extension increases versatility of this attachment option. A Canon DSLR shutter release cable is also included for use of the Mount's camera cruising feature with select Canon DSLR cameras. A cell-phone adapter bracket is also included, which allows you to attach any smartphone measuring 57mm-76mm in width to the AutoTracker Mount.

Eight AA batteries are required for motorized operation of the StarBlast AutoTracker Mount; or you can use an optional 12V, 2 amp power supply or AC Adapter (batteries and optional power supplies sold separately).

Note that an iOS or Android smartphone or tablet is required in order to use the GoTo functionality.
