Awesome product. A must have for astrophotography.
I have recived My heating band and around the linses it keeps the condense away. Now I can look forward to the winther and the clear skies.
Works as described. Would buy again
Works great! I bought a second one. It fits my FloroStar 90 with just a little extra.
The product is very good. Would not hesitate to buy it again.
I use the dew heater with a standard USB battery pack on the middle power setting which is enough to stop dew forming on small camera lenses. There's a lot of material to wrap around a camera lens which is a bit awkward but it works well - so I'll still give it 5 stars!
MSM product is a greater starter and depending how far/deep you want to go with your astro photography, it could be the only tracker you need. An added plus is the support and resources available on the MSM website. Once you understand setup, it becomes a breeze to use.
Lens fogging, either from dew or frost, can be a big problem with time lapse photography. Losing frames because of it can be a big setback for your project. Imagine a piece of gear that minimizes the chances of that happening.
Recently, I used a lens warmer on a 48 hour time lapse shoot during which temperatures would hover around freezing during the day and approach zero F at night. There was not a speck of frost in any of the frames from that shoot.
The heater draws about .6 A at full power, so the load isn't excessive. My setup is powered by a deep-cycle marine battery, so I used a 2 ampere USB adapter to step down the 12 volts from the battery.
Easy to set up and use. Definitely a grief-saver.
I really love my MSM. I live in Wichita and we have a lot of air traffic and I wish I would have ordered the polar scope version.
This tool is a great addition to any photographers kit. It's light, easy to set up and the lazer pointer provides a quick tool to get the north star aligned. I've used it several times in remote, dark skys areas and produced great results. For the price it's a real bargin.
