Nyx Tech began with my frustration over a lack of affordable star tracking options. I knew what I wanted - a compact, user friendly, competitively performing tracking mount that didn't cost a student loan payment. Finding that this didn't exist, I set out to make my own.

After perusing barn door tracker designs on the internet, I kluged together a tracker that became the first ancestor of the Nyx Tracker. After a year I built a much-improved version. I made 10 extra and sold them at a discount to Redditors on the r/astrophotography reddit because I enjoy making and sharing things. The magnitude of the positive reception was entirely unexpected! Seeing a need for this product in the community, I decided to build more.

The Nyx Tracker is now in its 4th generation.


Mission Statement

It is my personal mission to lower the cost of entry, both in price and difficulty, to enjoying the cosmic beauty of our universe. Nyx Tech will always be a labor of love by a space enthusiast, for space enthusiasts.


Clear Skies!!
