I’ve been using the MSM with moderate success, but needed to request a replacement after the unit I first received failed to track in the N orientation. I documented the issue and submitted a claim, and MSM replaced the unit. Unfortunately, the first unit purchased in time for a trip to the pacific islands and didn’t perform for me but the replacement I received operates (so far) as expected (I ran similar tests on the replacement and found it tracked as expected (see image) in both S and N directions.). But it’s now ‘out of season’ for Northern Hemisphere core MW shooting. I’ll look forward to it operating magnificently next spring, and if I can find the time for a random star tracking before then, I’m hopeful the replacement will perform well and as expected.
I try to keep my tripod and tracker close to the ground, that makes polar alignment a real pain. I’m bent over or lying on the ground. I tried the right angle finder along with the laser holder on my Skywatcher Adventure, it made alignment a breeze.
Very very easy to trasport, very easy to use and, above all... stunning price/quality ratio!
polarscope mount is a bit slacky, an not easy to adjust. that's why i give 4 starts only. Rest is very good.
Installed on my Star Adventurer Tracker without any problem : it's now a lot easier to perform polar alignment !
Works great! Highly recommend!
I purchased the right angle viewfinder to hopefully help ease the angle of viewing of the polar scope in my sky guider pro. I am so glad i purchased this. It truly works miracles..
The right angle finder works very well, but a bit flimsy made. I dropped my angle finder and the plastic end piece broke into 3 pieces. Fortunately that part is available as a special order. All is well now, I use it often.
This right angle view finder really helps when aligning the MSM using the polar scope. Alignment is more precise and therefore results are better especially using tele lenses.
I´m very pleased with the MSM tracker itself. I does a great job with wide angle shots and is easy to carry on hikes an while traveling.
I had just one issue with the laser pointer. It broke after i used it once or twice. With my 14mm and 20mm lenses the tracker even works fine just with eyeball alignement.
