What Alan Dyer Say about NOMAD?

How to do polar alignment in the Southern Hemisphere?

Difference between NOMAD and MSM Rotator:

  1. Improved attachment points. The previous manufacturing tolerances were fine for Astro-landscape but deep-sky needs a firmer foundation.

    1. The MSM Rotator, due to its design, required specific weight positioning to keep the ball head secure; this has been completely eliminated.  

    2. The laser now screws into the tracker eliminating any chance of wobble.  

    3. The industry standard quick-release plate on the bottom is secured in 2 places preventing any twisting of the tracker on its mount.  

  2. Improved load capacity.  

    1. The hardware has been built to withstand twice the amount of torque as the MSM Rotator. 

    2. Where the MSM Rotator was only designed for wide-angle Astro-landscape, the NOMAD has been designed with wide-field deep-sky use in mind.  

    3. Availability of an optional counterweight system for more experienced users to go even deeper.

  3. Simplified operation.  By designing and building a device with a narrower focus we were able to make it better while keeping the size down.

    1. One 3-position switch; Northern hemisphere, Southern, or Off.  

    2. In order to improve on our goals of ease of use and portability, the non-tracker function of the MSM Rotator has been left off, greatly simplifying the operation of the new tracker.  

    3. The NOMAD is focused on one function, star tracking.   (NOMAD does not have timelapse mode) 

  4. Reduced size and weight.  A foremost feature of our trackers is portability. 

    1. Our users take our trackers with them even when backpacking to some of the most remote areas of the world. 

    2. We worked to make storing and transporting the tracker even easier so you'll always want to have it with you when traveling.

    3. The tracker is called NOMAD for a reason; it is designed to travel with you wherever you go.

Great improvement over the original MSM

Even smaller and seems more accurate than the original. Great mount options for the laser, polarscope, and phone for polar alignment.Love the new mounting method for the ball head or z plate. The lock screw is a very welcome addition.

Very neat, just the build quality could be higher

I really enjoy taking photos with this thing. Just the threads for the laser pointer were so tight that I needed tools and some cutting oil the first time I wanted to screw in the laser pointer. With this the threads got cut in a little deeper and now it’s usable. Still very hard to turn by hand but usable.

dedicated service

Hana answered me very quickly and helped me with many things while I was able to receive the goods, although I cannot currently experience the products, in the rainy season in the country, I will continue to buy the products, which are Wedge and Flex. Tilt & Pan Head - Z&V.

Love the Nomad

I've been using the Nomad tracker for quite a while and absolutely love it. Small and lightweight, easy to polar align in the Southern Hemisphere. I totally recommend this product.

Nomad is excellent

I’m really happy with the nomad and laser for polar alignment. Does the trick and easy. I do have an issue with the polar scope. The reticle is just too small for me to see it.

I'm very happy with Msm Nomad

All is ok

Espectacular performance

After collimating the laser and the polar scope, the Nomad performs way better than I expected, really happy with it.

The perfect partner for night photography

Everything was súper easy from the purchase, delivery and tech service.
Very easy to align with the laser I have used 2 nights, and great results. I strongly recomend it

MSM Nomad

Recieved the complete unit a just a few weeks ago, follwed various you tube videos, set up was easy once I understood each detail and Polar alignment with the laser (check for airtraffic first) was a breeze. Not ised polar. Scope yet.
After first attempt with a Nikon dslr and 14-24mm lens soon realised I needed the V plate (RIP Alyn) to give further room to manoeuvre the camera, I ordered and that quicky arrived within 7days
This setup is much better. I've had 2 minutes exposure with a 14mm and 35mm lens and quite impressed with the tracking. Yet to shoot Milkyway but hopefully soon.
I would encourage msm to improve the threaded plug for the laser fitting hole, its very small and thin, out in the wild this could easily get lost if dropped. along with the cap on the laser pointer, just a bit fiddly
But overall its a sound peoduct and well made👍
