Smartphone holder for simple polar alignment with Star Adventurer Mini
(use the arrows on the left and right sides in the middle of the frame to scroll through pictures)
This holder helps to use a smartphone for simple polar alignment with Star Adventurer Mini. It holds a smartphone pointing into the direction of the Polaris. The compass and the gyroscope of the smartphone can be used to align the star tracker in combination with one of the apps available for this purpose. I use the "PS Align Pro" in the "Daytime Polar Alignment" mode for this. This provides sufficient alignment for focal lengths up to 50-80mm.
The holder can be detached from the star tracker after the alignment is done without changes on the setup. The design of the holder retains the access to the on/off button, cable plugs and LEDs.
