Even though I have not had a chance to use the tracker, I must say that I'm very pleased by their service. My package got lost even though the carrier tracking platform said it was delivered. Hanna sent me a replacement unit without any hesitation, which is absolutely amazing!! Thanks again!
I've only used it once so far but the results were amazing! Lightweight and very accurate, especially with wider-field shots. By far the most detail I've ever gotten out of the Milky Way with a setup that all fits in a backpack-sized camera bag. Definitely prefer its ease of use and portability over my bulkier EQ mounts. Polar re-alignment with the laser was also a breeze making it a trivial task to move the tripod if I wanted to change up my framing. I utilized a ball head mount for the tracker and the Z mount and a ball head mount for the camera which worked well to keep most of the weight centered over the tripod for my shots. I may eventually upgrade to the wedge for the tracker to make things a bit easier on polar alignment, but the ball head worked fine with a little finessing. Still have to see how far I can push focal length, but with the ease of alignment and steady tracking, I don't think it will be much of an issue.
The only issue I experienced was during the initial setup, as some of the mounting points weren't torqued down quite as tightly as needed and slowly began working their way loose. Make sure all attachment points are very well tightened because if they are not your camera weight may cause things to come loose and swing about. I had seen this mentioned a couple of times elsewhere, so I kept a close eye on it and caught it early before anything swung about. After torquing down all the bits and pieces a bit tighter, it worked flawlessly and there was no noticeable camera creep over the 4.5 hours of use. Looking forward to many more nights of imaging with this amazing product!
Me encanta este rastreador por su facilidad de uso y como a transformado mis fotos de via lactea.
Fantástica compra, las veces que lo he usado el resultado ha sido increíble y muy fácil de usar
I tried it last night (05/09/22 PARIS Timeline), installation was simple wih laser beam, and started 50 shots with duration 2 mns each on milky way at south around 4-5h morning with camera lens 16f/2.8. Résult is fantastic, next night i will try 4mns by shot... it's great help system.
I bought the MSM because I wanted to see if I wanted to do tracking. I appreciate the simplicity, low weight and low cost. The only fly in the ointment was the internal lens on the laser came loose and made the laser unusable. I Recommend having a spare laser along as a result.
Outstanding tracker and accessories, perfect for "on the move" astrophotography and timelapses. Got great shots of Orion, now just waiting for the Milky Way core so I can up my game!
Thank you for the Move shoot. I am excited. Now i have to learn how to use it its all new to me
Easy to use star tracker (Newest 2-in-1) - 2022 Milky Way Season is coming!
A good item reasonably easy to set up. Have to be careful with Laser and ensure NO Aircraft likely to be to the North of you.
