This is probably the best budget tracker that suits for beginners who just started astrophotography.

i couldnt afford a huge electronic tracker so i bought one of these to have a go astro photography, how amazed was i, i was set up and running in about 10 minutes and got some ingredible images of both orion nebula and the andromeda galaxywith the lens i was using the most i should have been able to track was about 45 seconds but i experimented for uo to 2 minutes without a single trail
cant recomend this enough
Out of the box astrophotography with DSLR camera....Review by Dark_sky on 31.03.2020 11:59:04

I am getting sharp photos of Venus under the Pleiades right out of the box! Stars were round and sharp with this set-up:
70 to 300mm telephoto, camera set to bulb at 3 to 10 seconds, 1600ASA equivalent, mirror lock set, cable shutter remote, manual focus, Omegon Mount with camera ball mount and star finder scope top plate set to my latitude subtracted from 90 degrees measured by iPad Theodolite app and clock speed checked by FrequencyMeter app.
After setting proper angle of the LX2, the base of the tripod was slued to Polaris and fine adjustments made to center the North Star to the center of the finder scope using the tripod altitude and azimuth adjustment knobs. All the locking screws on the tripod and LX2 except for the ball mount were tightened. This is perfect for exposures of up to 10 seconds and possibly a lot longer but the skies above Los Angeles are very light polluted and become too washed out at over 15 seconds.
The LX2 is very transportable and a lot easier to use for astrophotography than my small 6 inch reflector and worth every penny (or farthing as the case may be)! Wish I could share the first photo!!!
