The Baader NanoTracker is a compact and lightweight tracking camera platform for astrophotography. You can use it at home as well as all over the world. Every clear night gives you new chances for impressive images of moon, stars or the milky way combined with different landscapes, people or buildings. You won‘t miss bright meteors in the sky! And who knows what else you will capture “accidently“.
The Baader NanoTracker is the world‘s smallest star tracker. It weighs only 350g, measures 60x98x44mm (hand controller being 50×105,22mm) and so will fit into every photo-bag. To set the NanoTracker you need less than a minute to point it at Polaris with the integrated sight tube – you don‘t need an expensive or separate polarscope!
You can use the NanoTracker on both northern and southern hemisphere, and the unit features Sidereal (1x and 0.5x), Solar and Lunar tracking modes. Use the 0.5x “half sidereal speed“ to track the stars and to give sharp landscapes in your images. The Baader NanoTracker can also be used during the day for time-lapse movies, e.g. of clouds passing by, motion of the Sun or Moon across the landscape.
