The Astro camera mount is intended to make time-lapse photography accessible to anyone interested in cameras. It is designed to be inexpensive, durable, small enough to fit into your pocket, and easy to program. Its functions are accessed via a three-ringed control system, which is used to set the duration of the time lapse sequence (0.25-12 hours), the range of camera movement (0-360 degrees) and the interval at which photos are taken (0-60 seconds). Separate left and right buttons below the interval ring control the pan direction of the camera.
The tripod-mounted device is 3.15 x 1.18 inches in size and connects to the camera using a 2.5 mm socket. It runs at a maximum speed of six degrees per second and can hold up to five kg (11.02 lb) of equipment. The screw used to connect to the camera doubles as an on/off button. The device is powered by two AA batteries. Via Astro camera mount designed to make time-lapse photography easy and affordable.
