Innovative and Beautiful Panning Timelapse Controller – Oreo Anyone? 2

Here’s one of the better kickstarter projects I’ve seen in a while.  Astro is both an intervalometer and a panning controller and it’s simple no frills design is impressive.  The timelapse ‘cookie’ has three rings which control the length of the timelapse, the distance of the pan and the interval you want your camera to fire.

To change the settings you just rotate the dials.  Press the directional button you want the camera to pan and you’re set.  One Astro cookie with double fill will set you back $180

Astro mounts on your tripod with the regular screw mounts as you’d expect.  Check out their kickstarter video for a little demo and back story.
