solid, steady wedge, fitted to existing tripod without need for any additional bits. really nice bit of kit!
I have requested some plastic screws as spare parts, they have arrived very quickly and more quantity than i requested… thanks
Well constructed and precise device.
I was having trouble mounting the camera setup + MSM tracker on a ball head to do polar alignment. By the time I visually align the entire setup and tighten the ball head, the setup goes out of alignment. It gets extremely frustrating having to do this step over and over again in the field. This wedge completely changed my experience into a pleasant one. Such a precise polar alignment made possible an exposure time that reached close to 3 min for a 35mm lens without obtaining star trials in the image. I am very impressed with the comfort and results it brought me on the field. I highly recommend it!!
Wedge for precise polar alignment
Now all I need is a clear sky!
Lots of slop in altitude screw, and the azimuth screws shipped too tight. They can be loosened with a tool but you need to disassemble it partway to access the screws easily. However it's a strong smooth mechanism and it's price competitive with any other base
An awesome device. I tried an alternate brand and it did not do what I wanted. This device works perfectly every time. Well worth the investment 😁 now to get better and improve 😁
I am new to trackers and I used it only once so far and it worked great! I have gotten some of the recently released z brackets sold by MSM and they added better stability and easier alignment.
I've only used it once so I don't have much to review
