NanoTracker – The night the stars stood still

How many nights did you spend with your telescope under the night sky, gazed upon the stars and perhaps even tried astrophotography with your telescope? Now you can catch these immortal impressions without much baggage and work. Just use the rare clear nights for both observing and taking pictures!

Der kleinste StarTracker der Welt.
A hand full of tech: The NanoTracker is very compact and fits in every larger camera bag.

The Travel Companion for all astronomers

The world‘s smallest star tracker weights only 350g and fits into every photo-bag. You need less than a minute to point it at Polaris with the integrated sight tube

Unfortunately, the app mentioned in the instructions is no longer available in the App Store. However, many planetarium programs also display the equatorial coordinate network and the celestial coordinates; if you place the mobile phone on the nanotracker and aim for the southern celestial pole (declination -90°; the southern celestial pole because the mobile phone is pointing downwards if you want to see the display), this also works. Otherwise, you can also use your smartphone's compass/inclinometer. Align the nanotracker with the compass pointing north and use the tilt sensor to adjust the tilt according to your latitude. If the slide display is pointing upwards, the following applies: Angle of inclination = (90°) - (latitude of the observation site). You don´t need an expensive polarscope!

Take crisp, clear widefield-images of the night-sky with low-ISO and long exposure times.

You can use the NanoTracker on both northern and southern hemisphere, or use „half sidereal speed“ to integrate the landscape in your images. You‘ll soon find out about the perfect exposure times for both sky and landscape.

Das Ende der Strichspuren
After a few seconds, the earths rotation will cause stars to become stripes (top) – NanoTracker allows effortless longer exposure times (bottom)

Timelapse made easy

You can use your NanoTracker also during the day for timelapse movies, e.g. of clouds passing over the nature. The camera moves slowly over the landscape, providing more dynamics to your movies.

The easiest start into Astrophotography

The NanoTracker is compact and lightweight, so you can easily store it in your travel bagagge. You can use it at home as well as all over the world. Every clear night gives you new chances for impressive images of moon, stars or the milky way combined with different landscapes, people or buildings. You won‘t miss bright meteors in the sky! And who knows what else you will capture „accidently“.

Ultracompact: NanoTracker with Mini tripod, ballhead and DSLR.

The NanoTracker is also ideal comets imaging.

La Palma - wide field der Milchstarße
In La Palma habe ich mit dem Nano Tracker und einer Nikon D800E mit dem Sigma ART 35mm Objektiv dieses wide field der Milchstraße aufnehmen können. Belichtet: 30x120s bei ISO 400; Das Gewicht der Kombination mit stabilem Kugelkopf (fast 2kg) hat den Nano Tracker nach guter Balance nicht aus der Ruhe gebracht!
  • Einfach, klein, Solide, Zeitraffer Möglichkeit, absolut Reisetauglich!
    • @ChristophK Was Verwendest du zum addieren der 30 Fotos?
    • @Gast Ich verwende PixInsight zum Addieren und dann mit eine 16Bit Tiff ins Photoshop. ist einfach und die Daten machen keinen Stress.

Ein idealer Reisebegleiter
Jetzt kann ich dir endlich ein brauchbares Ergebnis von meinem ersten Versuch mit dem Nano Tracker abliefern. Um leichter einnorden zu können habe ich mir einen Polsucher gebaut. Die kleine Öffnung am NT ist bei Dunkelheit nicht leicht zu finden. Ein Leuchtpunktsucher ist in Arbeit. Da das Wetter auf der Gerlitzen zunächst nicht mitspielte, habe ich eine Serie in der Nähe von meinem Heimatort geschossen. 15 Fotos mit der Nikon D5000 und bei 18mm Brennweite, jeweils 2 min. bei ISO 400. Ich hoffe immer noch daß wir ein stabiles Hochdruckgebiet bekommen und ich endlich weitere Fotos auch auf der Gerlitzen machen kann. Zur Zeit haben wir jeden Nachmittag Gewitter. Ich finde der NT ist ein idealer Reisebegleiter.
Ich hab zwar noch immer mit dem NT kein Foto auf der Gerlitzen machen können, aber im Wald in meiner Nähe ist es auch recht dunkel und da habe ich vor einer Woche noch einmal einen schönen Teil der Milchstraße aufnehmen können. Fünf Aufnahmen mit vier Minuten Belichtungszeit. Diesmal ISO 600 mit der Nikon D5100 und 18mm Brennweite.
    • @H.K Was Verwendet ihr zum addieren der Fotos?
