Tried the laser with the my Iptron Skugiuider Pro. Made aligning with the North Star quite easy. For the type of photography I was doing that night I didn’t use the rectical for absolute alightment. My tracked images of the Milky Way turn out great. This is a very helpful product, juswt screw onto the IOptron and line up. Do be careful and look for airplanes.
Great product, superb service, a pleasure doing business with MSM.
The V and the Z mount are a very good solution and replaces my Benro 3way head. Very good and sturdy design

Well designed, good build quality and lightweight.
This really simplifies polar alignment. I also use it to point to my object, and finding that spot with a 500mm lens is really efficient.
I bought this based on reviews and You Tube videos to help to polar align my Star Adventurer 2i and it does a great job to help fine tune the procedure.
I recently purchased a Sky Watcher Star Adventurer 2i and the addition of laser alignment makes the polar alignment process as easy as with the MSM laser/polarscope process. Very easy to set up, and greatly speeds up getting a rough alignment on Polaris.
It is a gift, so I cannot comment because I haven't opened it... birthday in December
It saves me a lot of time!

Great laser, time saver. Makes polar alignment tons easier.
I purchased an MSM Wedge to cut down on some weight when travelling to image total solar eclipses to replace a bulkier geared head. Unfortunately the initial wedge I was sent would not stay in the set vertical position, despite tightening down very hard on the locking lever, so I requested a replacement unit which was sent within a few days. Sadly the second unit also slipped in the same way and so I looked into the build of the unit and found the issue. It seems that during transit some of the internal grease had made its way onto the nylon washers that the locking lever utilizes to secure the altitude position causing it to slip. Removing this grease cured the problem and I was then able to use it as intended to take an image of the Sun using a small light weight 70mm refractor fitted with a suitable solar filter and a CMOS astronomy camera. The unit is convenient for travel, but will need to be checked for such problems when travelling overseas by air in case the same thing happens again in transit. Maybe the design can be modified to prevent this particular issue happening in future?

Polar alignment has always been a pain...this laser fixes that and makes it super simple. I have the iOptron Skyguider Pro. I screw it in, shoot the laster, and point to Polaris. It gets me to where Polaris is in the polar scope 100% of the time, on the first try. No going back and forth, hunting, wondering if I have the right star. It's visual, it's simple and it's quick! I then make fine adjustments from there, and I'm off and running. I can't recommend this enough. It's the best $50 I've spent on improving my enjoyment of astrophotography bar none!!!
Great quality precision instrument !
Used it on my first session out. Got a little tangled up with all the locks, it sort of changed the stands for the tracker.I just need to see if I actually needs it on my rig. It is solid and sturdy and we’re well made
It was a good experience shopping with you. Always happy again.
Nice , compact and efficient.
This Right-Angle Finder along with the powerful Green Laser attachment make using the Sky-Watcher Adventurer GTI mount more pleasurable when polar aligning. I'm getting too old to be a contortionist!
Work just fine
The pointer is well-made and durable. However, the metal piece that slides into the hot shoe is too small and allows the pointer to move 15° to either side. If this piece was the width of the hot shoe so that it would not be able to move side to side, it would be perfect.
super compatible using method and super super super products c my sony a6000
My first try with MSM was last month during New Moon. After a recon trip, I spent an evening/night shooting the Milky Way and Perseids. MSM was amazing - easy to set up and worked perfectly - got the shots I wanted. Thanks!!
