The Vixen POLARIE Star Tracker revolutionizes astrophotography, allowing you to capture the night sky with unparalleled clarity. Designed specifically to track the celestial sphere, POLARIE compensates for Earth's rotation, enabling the photographer to capture atmospheric landscapes and the starry sky in crisp, point-like images. Its simplicity and compactness make it an ideal companion for photography enthusiasts around the globe.

Capturing the elusive beauty of a star-filled sky has always been a challenge. Traditional photography methods often result in stars appearing as elongated trails due to Earth's rotation, especially during long exposures necessary for night sky photography. While digital advancements have made it possible to reduce exposure times by increasing sensor sensitivity, this often leads to increased noise, compromising image quality. The POLARIE Star Tracker addresses this issue head-on by tracking in the opposite direction to Earth's rotation, facilitating sharp, noise-free images of the night sky, even over extended exposure times.

POLARIE is not just another camera accessory; it's a breakthrough for anyone aiming to photograph the night sky, offering simplicity and precision in tracking stars. Its multifunctional mode dial accommodates various photography needs, from landscapes to celestial bodies, with settings for tracking the sky, moon, sun, and stars. It also features a polar altimeter for quick focusing, a USB connection for external power, and a built-in compass for easy orientation. For those seeking even greater precision, optional accessories like a polar finder telescope and a tripod enhance the device's capabilities for long-exposure and telephoto photography.
