Description

Omegon Mount Mini Track LX2 – advantages in a nutshell

  • Takes great pictures of the night sky from anywhere in the northern hemisphere
  • Works without batteries
  • Fits in an airline carry-on bag, or any small bag.
  • Can handle most telephoto lenses up to about 300mm FL
  • Available with or without a quality ball head.

Better astronomy photos – anywhere in the northern hemisphere

Don’t just bring holiday photos back from your trip, take home stunning astronomy photos too, it’s a lot easier than you think.

All you need is a tripod, the MiniTrack mount, a ball-head (available as an option) and your camera. Reduced to the essentials this just does the job – producing good astronomy photos.

60 minutes of mechanical tracking

The MiniTrack runs by clockwork, with no electronics, a precision movement accurately tracks the sky. Wind-up the MiniTrack with its cord, like an analogue clock, and it will start tracking immediately and continue for 60 minutes. This mount will never flag, even in freezing conditions. The mount can even take a telephoto lens. It’s not surprising this has won the hearts of so many amateur astronomers.

Like a counterweight – the powerful spring system

The MiniTrack is extremely compact and needs no counterweight. That’s because it’s already there – in the form of a spring system. As the mount starts tracking, the spring both supports the weight and looks after the tracking. Take this mount in your luggage on flights and leave your main mount at home.

Find the pole in a jiffy

It is straightforward finding the Pole Star with the polar finder tube. This ‘rough’ orientation is sufficient to track your camera plus lens. Amazingly beautiful pictures are produced when carrying out a series of exposures.

Fits onto every tripod

The MiniTrack has two connectors – one for the tripod and another for your camera or ball-head. Simply attach the mount to your tripod as usual using the 1/4″ screw and align the MiniTrack as you like. Alternatively, you can mount a ball head with the 1/4″ or 3/8″ thread.
