Omegon Mini Track LX2 reviewThe Mini Track LX2 is a small camera tracker that provides 60 minutes of tracking time. It was developed by Italian astrophotographer Christian Fattinnanzi and is distributed by Omegon. The device stands out among the other available sky trackers, since it is driven by a mechanical clock that needs no electrical power source. Besides that, it brings another innovation: To compensate for the camera weight, it features a spring mechanism that helps to stabilize the tracking rate. We gave the new sky tracker a closer look.
PDF review of the Omegon Mini Track LX2
The picture below is a sample made with the Mini Track LX2. We shot this image of the Hyades and Pleiades clusters on La Palma island with a Canon 1100Da. The tracked exposures were done around local midnight and included 26 two-minute subframes at f/4 and ISO 3200 with a Hutech LPS-P2 light pollution suppression filter. We added four shots with a diffuser filter to enhance the star colors.
