Which star tracker should I get? Generally speaking, the longer the focal length of your lens or telescope, the more difficult it will be to take longer exposure times. To be able to shoot longer exposures, choose a standard star tracker such as the iOptron SkyGuider Pro, the Fornax LighTrack II, or the Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer 2i.
Do you need a star tracker for astrophotography? For photographers just starting out and learning the basics of astrophotography, a star tracker is certainly not needed. You’ll be able to take beautiful, sharp images of the Milky Way, especially if the night conditions are dark and clear.
Does Star adventurer have GoTo? The one major missing feature to the original Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer star tracker was GoTo functionality. “GoTo” simply means that you can pick an object in the night sky, and the mount will point to it for you.
