The Omegon MiniTrack LX3 mount, provided by astroshop.eu, is a unique mount that can help track the motion of objects in the night sky in the Northern Hemisphere, making it ideal for long-exposure and wide-angle astrophotography shots. Better yet, the mount doesn’t require a portable power source and features a completely mechanical clockwork mechanism, simply wound up by hand. The impressive clockwork mechanism helps track the movement of the stars for up to 60 minutes and for cameras and telephoto lenses up to about 300mm (11.8 inches) – offers the chance to take some spectacular photographs of the glimmering night sky. The mount doesn’t take up a lot of room either, allowing you to store it in a backpack and pulled out whenever opportunity strikes. With the smooth camera motion that this fully mechanical mini-mount provides, astrophotography has never been so easy.
