Description Technical Specs
 
The New Polarie U Star Tracker is an ultra-compact automatic star tracking device that moves your camera according to the diurnal motion of celestial objects for long exposure astrophotographs. The Polarie U also features a function for customizing the rotation speed using a smartphone and you are able to controlling the intervals of shots by adjusting the shutter release. By linking Polarie U's motion with the shutter release, you can easily set up complex shooting controls required for time lapse and interval photography, using your smartphone.

Experiment with Star-Scape Photography that captures the starry night and landscape below. Using a wide angle lens this creates impressive photos of stars and scenery combined.

The Polarie U is a completely re-designed star tracker. By moving the bearings supporting the rotating shaft, the weight is reduced by 20% from the original Polarie. The loading weight on the Polarie U is 5.5 lbs. This is increased to 14lbs when the Polarie Multi mounting block and dovetail slide bare are attached to Polarie U. When using Polarie for time-lapse photography, the Polarie U can hold a loading weight of about 22lbs.

In addition to the tracing speeds of Sidereal rate, Half Sidereal rate, solar tracking, and Lunar tracking, the Polarie U also has a custom mode for you to determine the tracking speed. The initial setting is 4x sidereal rate and you can adjust this using our smartphone.

Polarie includes an autoguider port to move the mount in the R.A. direction. Using the "shoot-move shoot" function (SMS) you can stop the camera during a time lapse sequence to deliver better quality images. The camera connection port (shutter release terminal) controls the camera shutter while shooting in SMS or interval shooting.
