PhotoRobot is a simple, lightweight (980g), but very reliable, expandable, motorised panoramic and astro photo tracking head, now even with Polar Align Assist function!
Simple and functional construction that actually works very well!
With a load capacity of 3 kg, this is the best value of such device in this category.



The Lacerta PhotoRobot allows quick and easy entry to the realms of all three "exotic" astro photo areas, such as

  • Panoramic Time Lapse photography
  • TWAN (The World at Night) photography without restrictions
  • Astro-Photo Panoramas up to 135mm focal length,

as the basic functions of all three areas are offered in this single device!

For intermediate use other, more expensive and more precise, devices with special functions are available from us as well: Skywatcher AZ GOTO (Merlin) mount for panoramic photography, Fornax-10 for long exposure astro photography and Vixen Polarie or Baader Nano Tracker for TWAN.
