Hi friends, the illuminator finally is ready, we will add it to all new orders from today.
It's included with the polar scope, no need to buy it separately.
For our purchased users before, please contact us to get the free illuminator, just pay the $6.95 shipping fee will be ok.
The polar scope is very valuable for quite precise alignment of your MSM. While the laser is good enough for short exposures, if you want to do really long exposures, you need to have very accurate alignment and the polar scope easily helps you achieve that. Love the customer service at MSM!!
When looking at improving my astrophotography skill set, the final, and arguably more cost effective option, was in adding a tracker to my list of equipment. While I’m not necessarily a gear intensive photographer, the MSM Rotator, offers features for both tracking option, and rotating for time-lapse photography making it a great 2-in-1 option.
The real benefit though is in its simplicity. Two buttons, one for power and function, the other for hemisphere alignment, and that’s it. The laser pointer makes polar alignment so easy, even accurate enough to track with a 135mm lens for the NEOWISE Comet, and a 140 second track of the Rho Ophiuchi. I have since added the Polar Scope and look forward to even better images.
Finally, the price makes this a purchase I really didn’t have to fear. This one device will allow me to take advantage of my current system and set of lenses and opens up the door for a lot more creativity.
Very high quality polar scope :)
I received it quickly and it work perfectly
After 3 years shooting the milky way without a tracker, this was my next step to improve my astro shots. Quite happy with the tracker. The MSM team are amazing. I don't regret it at all, my choice of buying your tracker.
I love the MSM polar scope - it is a great tool to carry around to perform polar alignment when the laser cannot be used because you live near an airport
Bought one for my Move-Shoot-Move rotator and love it. Makes polar alignment so much easier.
I purchased the MSM tracker, along with the laser pointer and the illuminated polar scope. I used to image with a Celestron mount and an 80mm scope; I was looking for something to make a smaller footprint, and easier to set up. This solved my concern, the product does what it is intended to do. Look up my YouTube channel for reviews.
I haven't used it yet, but look forward to it!
The Move Shoot Move tracker is easy to set up - and worked flawlessly. I have a second generation model with the buttons instead of the knob which i bought late 2019. I do like that the company continues tweak and improve the set up and system with new connection screw, remarkable battery for the laser, and now the new wedge pan tilt head making polar alignment easier and more accurate to quickly set up.
Kinda difficult to get use to but works great.
