Get the most beautiful pics of the Milky Way with the MiniTrack LX3

The Omegon MiniTrack LX3 is a compact photography mount that almost guarantees accomplished astropics - with both wide-angle and lightweight telephoto lenses. It is surprisingly simple to get gorgeous views of the cosmos - even if you think you don't belong to the bunch of gifted astrophotographers.

Moreover, the MiniTrack LX3 does it all without electricity - it's purely mechanical. The predecessor, the MiniTrack LX2, was already top-notch, but certain parts of the MiniTrack LX3 have been improved yet again, with a 60% increase in precision. So, look forward to wonderful pictures that will astound everyone. See for yourself and create gorgeous portraits in the blink of an eye.

The advantages in a nutshell

Take pictures of the night sky from anywhere in the northern hemisphere - successfully and effortlessly
Never needs charging - works via clockwork, so is independent of batteries and power sockets
Wind-up by pulling the cord and the mount will start operating immediately
Optimal for overview shots of the starry sky and using telephoto lenses up to about 300mm

The specific advantages of the MiniTrack LX3
More load-bearing capacity: the MiniTrack LX3 can support higher weights from now on i. e. cameras and equipment of up to 3 kg
A big Teflon bush ensures softer and more fluent motion
Even more customized: its stronger suspension system cushions or accelerates motions
CNC body: the casing is now even better, more beautiful and, above all, more stable
Optical polar finder for an exact adjustment to the celestial pole and impeccably precise tracked star pics
Better astronomy photos
Don't just bring holiday photos back home from your trip with you, take home stunning astronomy photos too. And it's a lot easier than you may think. All you need is a tripod, the MiniTrack mount, a ball-head and your camera. Reduced to the essentials it still does the job - producing good astronomy photos that anyone can take. And it does exactly that!

60 minutes of mechanical tracking
The MiniTrack has a clockwork heart, electronics have no place. A precision movement accurately tracks your camera. Wind-up the MiniTrack with its cord, like an analogue clock, and it will start tracking immediately and continue for 60 minutes. This mount will never flag, even in freezing conditions. Your new mount can even take a telephoto lens. It is no coincidence that this 'expert' in wide-field photography has won the hearts of amateur astronomers.

Like a counterweight: the advanced suspension system
The MiniTrack LX3 does not have a counterweight but features a suspension system instead that works like one. This makes the MiniTrack extremely compact and fit for travel. Now, as a new feature, an improved suspension system will support your camera, even under one-sided strain, and will cushion or accelerate the tracking system. This results in increased adaptability and tracking stars will become more accurate.

Tip: Optimum tracking speed is achieved when the clockwork ticks 130-135 times per minute. The spring has to be tensioned in accordance with the weight of your camera. Determining the ticks per minute with a “TapTempo-App BPM“ for smartphones is recommended. These apps are used in the field of music and measure the tempo of a composition automatically. Make use of such an app and measure the speed of the MiniTrack.

Big Teflon bush
The entire construction of the MiniTrack has been improved. Its bigger Teflon bush ensures an especially smooth camera motion, while tracking.

CNC casing
The new casing of the MiniTrack LX3 is more appealing to the eye and even more durable. This mount's milled aluminum is considerably more resistant. So don't worry if your mount has to endure adverse conditions. The quality of the MiniTrack LX3 holds up - even after several years.

More load capacity - equal portability
Do you need more? The MiniTrack will now support camera rigs of up to 3 kg, but the mount remains nearly as small, lightweight and portable as before. The only difference is you can use cameras with bigger or longer objective lenses and of course you can still expect the mount's superb stability.

Find the celestial pole more easily
Find the celestial pole with precision, using the optical polar finder. The MiniTrack LX3 comprises a bracket and a polar finder just as in larger mounts, making polar alignment easier to capture crisp stars and objects.

Fits onto every tripod
The MiniTrack has two connectors - one for the tripod and another for your camera or ball-head. Simply attach the mount to your tripod as usual using the 1/4" screw and align the MiniTrack as you like. Alternatively, you can mount a ball head with the 1/4" or 3/8" thread.

Invented and developed by Cristian Fattinnanzi
The MiniTrack mount was developed by Cristian Fattinnanzi from Italy. Omegon has taken over the distribution to make it accessible to a wider circle of photographers and nature lovers.

Take astronomy photos in no time at all using this fully mechanical mini-mount. No power or charging is required. Just take a picture - anytime, anywhere.
