This Star Adventurer McGill Bundle is great value for money as it includes the following parts: 1) Star Adventurer Mount, 2) Ball Head Adapter, 3) Illuminated Polar Scope, 4) Dovetail L-Bracket, 5) Equatorial Wedge and 6) Counterweight Shaft with 1kg Counterweight.

Everything you need to take fantastic pictures of the sky is provided!

A shutter release cable is optional depending on the camera models you have. This cable is a great accessory to have if you do not have a manual cable shutter release or intervalometer. It will allow your camera to take timed exposures based on the preset time intervals in the Star Adventurer mount. Should you need this shutter release cable, please order it inside the comment box during checkout. It costs extra S$20 only and may be delivered separately.

The Star Adventurer can attach to any standard tripod via its ¼” or 3/8” adapters. The latitude can be set by adjusting the tilt angle of the supplied Equatorial Wedge. To fit a camera to the Star Adventurer, connect to the supplied Dovetail L-Bracket. The Dovetail L-Bracket is used in conjunction with the supplied counterweight shaft/counterweight to allow a heavy telephoto lens or small telescope (e.g. Orion/Sky-Watcher/Celestron Mak-90), with a ¼-20 tripod fitting, to be used with the Star Adventurer.

Using just the Dovetail L-Bracket, two cameras can be mounted at the same time by two tripod ball heads (not supplied).
