QUANTITY

A new generation of computer controlled, multi-purpose astrophotography and tracking mount lets you focus on your art.

 

Rapid changes in technology will see astronomy and astrophotography radically change in the next few years. Here’s another glimpse into the future that BINTEL is proud to present. 

(**Please note DSLR Cameras and tripods shown in these images are not included and are optional extras**)

The Benro Polaris is the World’s First Electric Tripod Head with Camera Interface Controller, Remote DSLR Preview & Configuration through WiFi/Mobile phone network.

Astrophotographers will appreciate that with the Benro Polaris, polar alignment hassles are a thing of the past. Low power consumption combined with a high capacity 11.1V 2500mAh Lithium-Ion battery means you can shoot all night.

Not just a star tracker mount

High precision brushless motors are a first for star trackers and offer micro control not just for tracking the night sky but combined with built-in DSLR control means breathtaking timelapses for landscapes, sunrises and sunsets and even satellite tracking.  It’s an artistic tool for both night and day photography.

Remote control

Spending time managing a mount during a long night, especially during the cooler months, can be a trial. Concentrate on your astrophotography creation and let the mount take care of itself by controlling your Polaris via Wifi or Bluetooth.

You can even send your camera and mount away to remote, dark sky location. It simply needs to be charged and levelled and you’ve then got total control for alignment, tracking and imaging over the normal mobile phone network from anywhere in the world.

Shooting Modes

An extensive range of shooting modes extends the abilities of Polaris while giving you full creative control. On offer are are astro photos, Sunrises or Sunsets, programmed path and times-lapses or even stack multiple photos for full depth of field.

 

 

Rugged, tough and waterproof

The Benro Polaris is waterproof and dustproof with an IPX6 rating.  Polaris is made with aluminum alloy that endures severe working environments.  It’s the toughest, most rugged star tracker mount we’ve ever seen!

Heavy duty carrying capacity

At 7kg carrying capacity, the Polaris has the highest carrying capacity of any star tracker mount. Any current DSLR camera and most lens are ideal. It would also be a great match for a small refractor and a DSLR.

The mount itself is lightweight at only 1.5kg.

 

Ongoing software updates

The Benro Polaris is already receiving regular software updates. The mount’s remote connectivity, advanced hardware including precise, high torque motors are the foundation for ongoing refinements and feature additions.

Matching Tripod

Almost any high-quality photographic tripod can be used to carry the Polaris mount. We suggest this Benro carbon fibre tripod. It’s lightweight with a carrying capacity to match the Polaris.
