I found the Star Adventurer to be well built and portable tracker with many great features! The basic photography kit is great for short focal length, wide angle photos, but for longer focal of 200-300mm I would recommend getting the Declination "L" bracket and counter weight, (As in photo below). Sorry, no astro photos to share yet, been cloudy and nasty in the NE US.

The one small issue I had, was calibrating the polar scope. The machining on the eyepiece threads had too much play, allowing you to move it around, even when screwed almost all the way in!
This mount performs exactly as advertised. I took it out for the first time a couple of weeks ago in Maupin, Oregon. I'm attaching a couple of images, so you can see what's possible with this mount. As I said, this was my first time. The first image is of Andromeda, and its two companions. The second image is of the Milky Way, with the galactic center in Sagittarius in the lower left, and Cygnus in the upper right. The North American nebula is visible as a pink patch in Cygnus. Note that there are no star trails in the images.

Equatorial Wedge (Recommended. This makes polar alignment MUCH easier.)

24-105mm IS USM L lens (for the Milky Way at 24mm)

I love this small mount. I use it with an Astro Tech ED72 and a Nikon D750 DSLR and an Orion small refractor field flattener. Had to use the counter weight assembly due to extra weight.
Good for two minutes exposures unguided. Total portable mount you can take every place. Very well made and easy to setup and use.
