Widefield Astrophotography Setup

An essential part of any astrophotography imaging kits is a tracking mount. The image below show the OMD EM5 with Voigtlander 25mm attached to a SkyWatcher Star Adventurer. Situated below the camera is a PoleMaster, one of the best, if not the fastest ways to get accurate polar alignment. Trust me, its worth the money. For finding objects in the night sky, a red dot finder is necessary. One has been attached to the EM5’s hot shoe via a custom 3D printed adapter.
