Product Information

Overview

In order for any star tracker to work the way it's designed, polar alignment has to be done in the first place. It is the act of aligning the rotation axis of a star tracker in parallel with Earth's self-spin axis. How do you know when your Move Shoot Move Star Tracker's rotation axis is aligned? Well, the Polar Scope we have here does just that!

Preorder Polar Scope A Package For NOMAD

This polar scope Kit is for the NOMAD tracker, it includes:

  • Polar Scope A
  • Polar Scope Mount for NOMAD
  • Fluorescent illuminator 

 

Preorder Polar Scope A Package For MSM

If you only have a MSM Star Tracker, which means you don't have a Pointer, a polar scope mount or a polar scope illuminator, this is the go-to package for you. It includes all the accessories needed to do polar alignment on a MSM Star Tracker:
  • Polar Scope A
  • Universal Mount Combo
  • Fluorescent illuminator 

Polar Scope B Package For MSM

Similar to Polar Scope A Package. Included are:
  • Polar Scope B
  • Universal Mount Combo

How to use Fluorescent illuminator?

Please use your headlamp or phone light to shine the light first, the paper inside will absorb the light and then glow in the dark. If you want to test it before going out, please test it in a dark room.

      Continue to be happy with MSM products

      I recently added the polar alignment scope and right angle bracket. I'm very happy with their products and their service, support gets back overnight when I've had questions.

      Fills a niche and makes things easier.

      This makes quick work of polar alignment on my Star Adventurer. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this to anyone looking to streamline their setup.

      Not five stars due to the Polar Scope!

      Everything works as expected. The Nomad is much easier to operate than its predecessor and offers excellent results for its category. My only complaint is about the Polar Scope A Kit for Nomad. I cannot offer an opinion because I have been unable to operate it as I cannot make sense of the image! (Image included) Is it too much to ask for a video or a small PDF clarifying how it is supposed to use it? Do you get the idea? I really hope so!

      Where was this all my days of imaging the stars,?

      I don't know how I got by without this device. It has made my life so much easier aligning on Polaris. Gone is the sore knees and the stiff neck that used to haunt me. Do yourself a favor and purchase this and reap the same benefits that I have now become so used to.

      Love the little tracker!

      Love the size of tracker. Timelapse’s are a cinch. I use the laser to get close then zero in with Polar Scope. I just use laser if using my 20mm lens and Polar Scope when using 85mm plus. Works like a charm! Tracker has only sidereal option but during 3 hr eclipse only had to readjust tracker twice. Very happy with it.

      Superb simplicity

      The new Nomad tracker is a big step forward. Smaller, stronger and more reliable . Highly recommended.

      Awesome polar scope

      Polar scope and the reticular pattern are great. I am able to polar-align in minutes. in areas with low intermediate light pollution using the laser along with the polar scope make things a lot easier. The fluorescent eliminator make things extremely easy in the dark. I am new to this hobby. This is the second stacked picture I took, a otal of 28 pictures of 45 sseconds each. I wish I ccould have taken more but the clouds covered the sky soon after. I used a Canon t3i with an EF 100-300 lens.

      An Essential Tool for Accurate Polar Alignment

      I’ve been able to achieve accurate polar alignment with the MSM Polarscope doing deep sky shots resulting in 60+ second exposures with no star tracking.
      I did do a calibration since it was a little off when I received it but that was a simple process.
      The Illuminator is very effective. I simply keep a small flashlight in my pocket and very briefly expose the illuminator to the light before use. No wires or batteries involved.
      When used with a polar alignment app on the phone, achieving a perfect alignment is quick and easy.
      I highly recommend this product.
