Hello all...looking at this new product from Ioptron for general wide field imaging with my DSLR. The one from Vixen is $430 and the Sky Tracker is $350, plus it has a small polar scope to point at Polaris for set up. Looks pretty good for the money and maybe good for up to 5 min. exposures?

Any thoughts on this?

Thanks,

Bob

Posted in another thread in the 'Mounts' section that I just bought one, we'll see how it works. (search 'skytracker' one word).

There is an Italian video on youtube, http://www.youtube.c...h?v=GCEZQPsBWtQ which gives you a better look at the device.
