This is Star Pointer for Astrophotography.
This Star Pointer can be used for Astro shooting, act as simple polar alignment without the equatorial mount.
- Switch to the newest plastic screw for the mount to protect your Rotator's surface from scratch.
Laser Product, please don't aim the laser pointer at a person's head or eye!
I’ve now used my MSM Star Tracker Pro for a few times and love it for it’s portability and precision. Even using the star pointer laser versus the polar scope is spot on. I have the iOptron model too and prefer the MSM system because of it’s minimal size, laser pointer alignment, and tripod adaptability. A Hui Hou! -Jonny
It is a small and versatile unit, very package friendly. It feels sturdy and well built. Easy to align with the laser pointer and the polar scope. For some better results and fine adjustments I`ll order the wedge. I`m very glad about my choice over the other rotators.
A good product, amping it will also work by very cold temperatures that we know here in the Kirghiz winter
It is excellent, only when I bought it I thought it came with the base to be installed in the MSM
Got an replacement for the fried laser. Excellent customer service and semi-fast delivery.
With this laser pointer you can align the MSM more precisely than before. I wish this option would have existed at my original purchase.
A simple idea that I use all the time. A laser pointer to do quick polar alignment is about as easy to use as it gets. It is all you need for wide field of view photography. If you want to do deep space photography (narrow view) it also helps you greatly... gets you 99% aligned so you can fine tune with the polar scope.
The laser light is very bright, and makes it seriously easy to align on Polaris. Can't be any quicker.
The Stair pointer works great and aligning up with the North star was quick and easy. However I think they should up grade the plastic screw fasteners or at least provide couple more. That could ruin a shoot if they break or strip out.
As a beginner in astrophotography the MSM has been a great bit of kit. It’s compact and light and provides adequate tracking for wide field Astro imaging with surprising accuracy. I haven’t utilised the time lapse function but it would appear to be an easy set up. Polar alignment with the laser option is easy but is more accurate using the polar scope option. Altogether a great bit of kit to allow simple star tracking and becomes more accurate the better your polar alignment is.
