This like new iOptron SkyTrackerTM camera mount is the perfect accessory for astrophotography. This portable mount makes it easy to take long exposures of the night sky without streaking or star trailing. Simply polar align, attach your camera to the front and turn on. The mount's slow-motion motors keep your camera tracking as the Earth rotates for beautiful images of the night sky. The SkyTrackerTM mount runs on 4AA batteries or DC adapter for portability at any location. Now you can take photos of the night sky like never before! 

New retails from ioptron for $300. I'm asking for $250 for a like new version.
