I'd appreciate comments on Newest 2-in-1 Star Tracker

Recommended Posts

Just seen a YouTube on a Newest 2-in-1 Star Tracker. However I'd appreciate any real world views or comments on this bit of kit.

Cheers

I had a quick look. The thing that bothers me with this tracking mount is the polar scope. It just uses a green laser to align to polaris ( pointing a laser into the sky is never a good idea, could land you in trouble with the law). It does not use a traditional polar scope. It says it gives an accurate alignment to polar using this laser pointer. But I am a bit sceptical about this. For the money they charge for this mount I think you would be better looking at something like a star adventurer or an ioptron skyguider.
