The NEW Nano Tracker from Sightron is the successor to the original "nano.tracker", which has been very popular as a compact tracking device that can easily take Nightscape photos since its release 10 years ago. It now includes an external power port (USB-mini B type, cable sold separately) to the hand controller, which has been requested by many users. This makes it possible to drive from a USB power source as well as from 3 AA batteries.
Have you ever seen a beautiful starry sky and thought, "I wish I could capture this wonderful sight with my camera" Nano Tracker is a starry sky tracking device that will help make that wish come true!
Light weight at only 400g, simple to use, and easy to carry taking up very little room in your camera bag.
Easily track the stars, moon, and sun
The stars, the moon, and the sun seem to move at the same speed, but in reality they move at slightly different speeds. The nano tracker has sidereal time tracking, moon tracking, and sun tracking modes, so you can choose the mode that best suits your shooting target. For example, select "Sidereal Time Tracking Mode" when shooting the Milky Way in the sky, "Moon Tracking Mode" when shooting the moon, and "Sun Tracking Mode" when shooting a solar eclipse.
0.5x speed mode convenient for Nightscape photography
Recently, "Nightscape Astrophotography", which takes pictures of the starry sky and the scenery on the ground together, has become popular. You can shoot in normal tracking mode, but the scenery on the ground will be blurred. The nano tracker is equipped with a 0.5x speed mode that tracks at half the normal tracking speed, and by halving the amount of blurring of the landscape on the ground, it is possible to take more natural nightscape photographs.
The Nano Tracker has a small "Pole Star Peephole", and you can adjust the orientation of the New Nano Tracker so that you can see the North Star in the center of the hole, and the setting is complete.
Even beginners can easily set it up. The New Nano Tracker is designed to be used with wide-angle lenses. Exposures of 2 to 3 minutes can be attained.
Lightweight and compact
Weighing in at a whopping 400g it is large enough to fit in one hand, so you can easily bring it with you when climbing a mountain or traveling abroad.
The nano tracker can also be used in the Southern Hemisphere.
Now equipped with an external power port
The New Nano Tracker is equipped with an external power port (USB mini-B type, cable sold separately). It can be driven by a USB power supply.
