Vixen AP Photoguider

The AP Photo Guider is an exceptionally portable Star Tracker designed for capturing long-exposure astrophotographs with ease. Offering the precision of the AP mount in a more transportable format, it's an ideal choice for astrophotographers on the move.

Equipped with the STAR BOOK ONE controller, the AP Photo Guider ensures meticulous tracking over extended exposure periods, making it perfect for capturing the stunning details of the night sky through larger telephoto lenses. The STAR BOOK ONE controller is versatile, offering various tracking speeds suitable for solar and lunar photography, along with advanced features like backlash compensation and periodic error correction (PEC).

For enhanced tracking precision, especially during long exposures, the STAR BOOK ONE includes an Autoguider input. Additionally, achieving precise polar alignment is simplified with the innovative polar finder scope. Aligning two reference stars with the reticle's markings eliminates the need for complex hour angle adjustments.
