I haven’t had the opportunity to use it yet but I love how easy it was to set up.
The rotator is small, sturdy, easy - exactly what I needed.
I was already able to make a tracked test-photo in my backyard with my MFT 12 mm (alias 24mm FF) on top of the MSM Rotator.
Although not a lens with the widest field of view -surprisingly- I was able to capture pin-sharp stars at 4(!) mins exposure time.
Well, I assume this was a luckily precise Polaris alignment and wouldn't take it as a standard but I'm confident to get 2+ mins exposures reliably in future.
Now, let's hope for clear skys!
I found the MSM star tracker easy to use after visiting you tube. The laser pointer works very well. Very happy with the purchase so far. I did find the instructions that came with the MSM hard to read because the print was so small. Even with glasses on it was impossible to read.
I started shooting galaxy photos about a year ago. To improve the quality I read you can track it. MSM makes this possible for an outstanding value! You can also use it for time lapse, BONUS! I highly recommend MSM!
Small, portable, powerful.
All you need for your astrophotography, easy to carry everywhere. Perfect for a trip outdoor or for your local spots. Small price big performance.
This is an amazing tool for those of us who want milky at shots without all the big equipment. I run a Sony RX10IV, only a one inch sensor. . . Yet I was able to get some amazing shots of the milky and the occasional galaxy with 2 minute exposure at 800iso F2.4. Great products. Just be aware, I tried to use it in Alaska in 4 degree weather, it was too cold for the gears to work. The laser is a life saver. Happy hunting.
Firstly the MSM unit is brilliant. I have no complaints on the unit itself. The laser will need calibrating but then it works great. The one thing that lets it down for me is the Wedge which I paid a fair bit extra for but is pretty useless I’m sorry to say. It’s generally loose on all axis, and sags quite badly once it’s aligned, to the point it’s unusable. I just use my ballhead now which is a bit fiddly to align and less accurate but at least it stays put. Other than that the MSM unit is excellent and I highly recommend it. I’m able to get 5 minute exposures with a full frame body and wide angle lens, and up to 2 minute exposures with a 70-200 GM II. With more accurate aligning I’m sure I could get much longer on both. So I’m very happy with the MSM unit.
It is amazing how such a small device can give such great results. It sets up easily in just a few minutes, and if you use focal lengths less than 35mm, you don't even need to fine the polar alignment, it's possible to take perfect 2 minute pictures. I haven't tried shooting with longer focal lengths yet, but so far, I'm delighted with the results. I recommend MSM Rotator to everyone!
