Exclusive tool for shooting starscape images with camera

There are many subjects for shooting, constellations, meteors, and comets. The AP photoguider is an equatorial mount designed to shoot starscape images with excellent tracking accuracy in a compact body. The equipped STAR BOOK ONE controller assures high-precision tracking.

Excellent tracking accuracy

The AP Photoguider allows you to take pinpoint photos of stars and constellations without guiding corrections for the length of several minutes. If you have a digital SLR camera with a telephoto lens, shooting nebulae and star clusters will be fun with the AP Photoguider.


The AP Photoguider includes the sturdy but lightweight APP-TL130 tripod, with the complete system weighing only about 5.4kg, convenient for transporting to a dark location away from light pollution.


Attach the camera mount on the dovetail slide bar PG first and then camera set for shooting. You can start shooting immediately if you mount a lightweight camera. In case of mounting a heavy camera, attach a supplementary counterweight bar as well as a counterweight 1kg for stable conditions.

The AP Photoguider is equipped with the polar alignment scope where polar axis is aligned at accuracy within 3 ar sec, using auto power off for illumination of the dark field illuminator.
