Producto Láser, por favor no apunte el puntero láser a la cabeza y el ojo de una persona!
I had trouble with the scope but the Polar Pointer makes this process so much easier.
Really neat tool to get polar alignment. So easy as long as you have as Z/V mount or a aligner thingy.
I love using the new scope and laser mount! It was nice to use the laser to use as a guide while I looked through the polar scope! Made alignment that much easier for me!
I struggled to find a battery charger for this item, and I would recommend that MSM make such items available on their website - assuming they can source them in the first instance? Kind of off-putting that you buy this and can't charge it!
Nevertheless, if you nip onto eBay you can buy a similar charger for a 'longer' battery (same voltage etc.) and having found a donor socket of 'correct' size from your socket set, use that to fill the gap. Works for me :)
MSM people solved the problem I had with the not working laser pointer. They sent me back a new one in a very efficient way. Thanks a lot! Now I can again have fun shooting to stars
The laser pointer makes polar alignment very easy and it's good enough for 1 minute plus wider angle shots like 24 mm or wider, longer focal lengths are possible but sometimes it's a roll of the dice. I like the fact that the laser can be easily calibrated. The biggest drawback to this system though is the mounting bracket. Mine came with a 3 diameter stepped bore which was obviously a way to be able to accommodate different sized accessories. Each diameter only had one threaded hole for securing the accessory, in this case the laser. This made things less than optimal for setup repeatability as the accessory cam be locked down at slightly different angles during each setup. Luckily I have access to the machinery and the knowledge to make my own mounting adapter(s). I made 2, one for the laser and another for the polar scope each with it's own precision single diameter bore and threaded holes for three accessory capture screws. The laser works fine but the mounting system leaves a bit to be desired. The system came with one battery for the laser and there was no option when I ordered mine to purchase the needed battery charger. That and and a spare battery had to be ordered from another vendor.
I got the latest version. I'm very happy with the purchase.
It is the easiest polar alignment tool on the market. Period.
1. very easy to calibrate
2. very easy to use
3. very fast polar alignment
that type of battery is expensive but because of its small size, the laser pointer is short and small
I tracked 50 mm lens (equivalent) for two minutes and i got sharp stars. Then i tried 90 mm equivalent for 60 seconds and again i got sharp stars. So i decided to try 150 mm equivalent for one minute and still got sharp stars. Then i tried equivalent of 300 mm f2.8 in horizontal position but it was already way over midnight, and the lens got foggy so i am not sure if it works with that lens. Partially my fault as i did not put hood on that lens to make it lighter and better balanced. Can't wait for clear sky to give it a try with 300 mm focal length (Andromeda).
MSM team provides outstanding service. The tracker arrived from Hong Kong in one week. They called before they showed up at the door. Very professional.
I highly recommend laser pointer even for experienced astrophotographers.
Pointer for Polar Alignment
For longer focal lengths, an accurate laser us just a must. This laser is easily calibrated and the strength of the laser is fantastic. A must have if you buy the MSM.
