About the AstroTrac TT320X-AG

The AstroTrac opens up a whole new area of photography. Now your camera can reveal the heavens in a way which isn't possible with the naked eye.

What does it do?
Most objects in the night sky are very dim, so photographing them requires long exposures, normally between 1 and 5 minutes. Standing on Earth, it appears that we are stationary and the sky is rotating.

During an exposure of several minutes, this movement will show up as star trails in photographs. The AstroTrac follows the movement of the sky with great accuracy eliminating star trails and ensuring sharp images with pinpoint' stars.

How does it work?
Using an AstroTrac couldn't be easier. Setup takes just a few minutes using standard photo kit. Point your camera at the target in the sky, make sure it is properly focused and start the exposure. A few minutes later, end the exposure and enjoy the fantastic images on the back of your camera!

Portability
Less than 1.4 kg (3.1 lb) in weight and less than 44 cm (17.5") long,the TT320x is extremely portable and can easily be carried with other equipment. The TT320x can be easily carried in airline hand luggage under the new luggage size and weight restrictions.

Worldwide
Not only is the TT320x extremely portable, but its patent pending drive mechanismalso makes it useable anywhere in the northern or southern hemispheres without the need to press buttons, flick switches or reprogram.

In the northern hemisphere, simply unstow the TT320x anticlockwise and you are ready for 2 hours precision tracking. In the southern hemisphere, unstow the TT320x in the clockwise direction instead.

Polar alignment
The TT320x has a built in polar arm into which a polar scope locates to make polar alignment quick and easy. For transportation and storage the polar arm tucks away neatly between the drivearms. The polar arm rotates and clicks every 15 degrees, allowing the polar scope to be positioned with a unobstructed view of the Celestial Pole clear of cameras ortelescopes.

Polar alignment is quick and easy. Simply insert the polar scope through the hole in the polar arm. Powerful magnets in the polar arm will ensure the polar scope remains flush with the polar arm. Rotate the polar scope until the reticleis correctly aligned. Then make fine adjustments to correctly align on the celestial pole.

Power
The long drive arms of the TT320x allow a small motor to drive a relatively largeload. This reduces the power requirement such that the unit only pulls around 0.2 Amps maximum at 12 V.
