Hi Friends, 

Due to excessive demand for polar scope, it's out of stock now, new stock is scheduled in July.15.2020.

So if you ordered a kit including polar scope, by default, we will have all but the polar scope shipped first, and send the polar scope separately to catch your time.

MSM team, June.28

"Amazing!
Why didn't anyone think of this before? Polar aligning has never been easier! The building quality of the MSM Tracker far exceeded my expectations based on how inexpensive it is. I also love how compact it is, taking up a very small space in my camera bag. I've been able to take 5-minute exposures with no trails! I would highly recommend this tracker to anyone who wants to shoot the Milky Way!" - Phil Sutphin, US

How to Choose the Ideal Gear for Your Astro-Landscape Photography?

Options: (New US stock is on the way, all orders for US users will be sent from our US warehouse)

Good News!

After 9 months of test, we finally get the wedge ready, from now on the Pan/Tilt Head will be replaced by this wedge to give better precision in alignment.

Wredge for astrophotography

Starter Kit: Rotator, Laser Pointer, Ball Head, Laser Bracket, Laser Charger

Basic Kit A: Rotator + Polar Scope + Scope illuminator+ Scope Bracket

Pro-Kit A: Rotator,  Polar Scope, Scope illuminator, Scope Bracket, Wedge, Head Lamp (Red LED)

Basic Kit C: Rotator, Laser Pointer, Polar Scope, Scope illuminator, Bracket, Laser charger

Complete Kit: Rotator, Polar Scope, Scope illuminator, Laser pointer,  Wedge, Head Lamp, Bracket, Laser Charger)

 Do I need the star pointer?

  1. If you are new to astrophotography, we recommend choosing the star pointer to begin. It's easier to use than the polar alignment for novices. 
  2. If you mainly use a wide-angle lens, then the star pointer is enough and the most convenient for you.

So,

  • For US users, I recommend you just choose the Starter Kit, it will be shipped from our US warehouse directly to you, you can receive it within 4 days. 
  • If you are new and have a low budget, buy the Basic kit B to start
  • If you want a ready to shoot Astro kit, buy the Pro kit B. 
  • If you are experienced, you will understand how much you can benefit from the Rotator's portability and it's straight forward design.

    Do I need to buy the Polar Scope?

    1. If you use a long lens, then the Polar Scope will provide a more accurate polar alignment.
    2. If you are from Australia, then buy the Polar Scope as it is prohibited in Australia to buy the laser pointer.
    3. If you might travel to Australia, Switzerland or other locations that do not allow a laser pointer, then you will require a Polar Scope.

    So, 

      Does this Tracker support my Camera?

      YES!

      1. As a star tracker, it can support all cameras.
      2. As a timelapse mount, it works directly with Nikon, Canon, and Sony cameras through the hot-shoe port. For Fujifilm, Panasonic, and Olympus, just connect the intervalometer.

      Satisfaction Guaranteed

      30-days full refund Warranty.

      If you received a defective one, don’t worry, we will resend you a new one immediately. Up until now, the defective rate is less than 1%.

      The mechanism behind Move Shoot Move star tracker:

      • The Earth is rotating.
      We know our Earth rotates once every 23h 56m4s. Its rotation axis goes through Polaris, and stars are not stationary relative to our Earth.
      Just as the below photo shows, the stars circle around Polaris.
      how to do polar alignment
      • What happened?
      According to 500 rule, we usually can not expose for more than 25s, often less than15 seconds, which results in:
      1. Many faint stars are missing from our photo.
      2, Ugly stars trails.
      3, Noise ruins our composition.
      • How to expose more than 60 seconds?
      The Move Shoot Move tracker rotates at the same speed as the Earth, but in the opposite direction. As a result, the stars will be tracked, and they will remain in the viewfinder. Your exposure time can be up to minutes in duration, faint stars will show up in your pictures, star trails will disappear, and lower ISO helps to reduce noise. Finally, you can get clear, pinpoint photos of stars and the night sky.

      • What's Polar alignment?
      The Earth's rotation axis goes almost exactly through Polaris.
      So, we need to make the Rotator's rotational axis parallel to the Earth's rotation axis. This is called polar alignment.
      • Is your Polar alignment difficult and complicated?
      What if I don't know RA, D-dec, and I've never studied astronomy? Can I still do polar alignment? 
      Don't worry, it's easy-
      • If you already know where to find Polaris, then just aim the laser at Polaris, and polar alignment is accomplished😉.
      • If you don't know where to find Polaris, then download a free app, 'Skysafari,' set it to VR mode. It will spot Polaris when you move your phone around the sky.
      • How to do a polar alignment in the Southern Hemisphere?
      It's a similar operation, but with different stars, here is a tutorial in more detail.
      • If the star is tracked, will the foreground be blurred?
      Yes, the foreground will be blurred. Then what do I do about that? Change the shooting sequence.
      1. First, we turn the tracker OFF to get a clear foreground shot(your composition).
      2. Then we wait for the ideal stars to show up in our composition, turn the track ON, and shoot the tracked stars. Then combine these two pictures to get the final one in Photoshop or other post-processing software.

      "So simple to use

      I purchased a Sky Watcher Star Adventurer awhile ago, and beside the weight, it was that complicated I just could not be bothered. Having received my MSM last week I went out with high hopes and it delivered. I did not purchase the polar scope or laser pointer, but used a couple of different apps on the phone and was able to take shots of more than 5 minutes with only small movement. Shots under 3 minutes were pin sharp.
      Finally, the weight. So easy to just chuck it in the camera bag and take it anywhere. So glad I decided to purchase Move Shoot Move!!!"

      Below is Mr.Alyn's review from the UK, on star tracking.

       

      Check Mr.Gunther's review, the godfather of timelapse.

       

      The mechanism for time-lapse: 

      It works by adjusting the angle of rotation, not the speed of rotation, with seven options: Star Tracking Mode, Time-lapse mode of 0.05, 0.075, 0.1, and 0.125 degrees per picture. Therefore, you control the camera's rotating based upon the angle selected, and the interval set on your timer (you need a separate timer/intervalometer, which is inexpensive). The longer the interval you set, the slower the rotation. Once you are done taking a picture (which the rotator ‘knows’ through the hot-shoe cable), the rotator will turn the defined angle, which means that the camera is not turning while the picture is being taken.
      Key features:
        Weight:  (450g), Compact (1.7" x 3.15" x 3.9")
        Ultra-long battery life

          Up too 3000 shots in one charge. 

          Passive (Slave) motorized in timelapse mode

            The Rotator is just a slave to your camera (intervalometer). There is no conflict with your camera's built-in App, and it is compatible with most cameras that have a hot shoe port.

              Our worm-gear self-lock mechanism presents two key benefits: Top-Level Move Shoot Move performance and Super Long Battery Life.
