I had been having difficulty doing polar alignment with the illuminator supplied by Skywatcher. Purchasing the Quick Polar Finder by MSM has totally eradicated any problems I encountered. It is quick, easy to use and accurate and has made my initial difficulties with polar alignment a thing of the past.
Excellent and robust product to establish initial polar alignment with the Star Adventurer 2i before fine-tuning with the units polarscope.
MSM has took my astro photography to the next level. Low noise images is no longer a dream. It’s is compact and portable, polar aligning is easy, my whole setup is 2-3kg and it handles it very well! Definitely recommend!
MSMs polarscope is a very nice addition to my portable grab-and-go astrophotography collection. Finally, a chance to experiment with a longer lens! Do a quick alignment with the lazer, and then tune that alignment with the polarscope. With care and patience, it is very quick to polar align and start capturing light. My first light test on Sadr in Cygnus with one minute subs at 135mm show no sign of trailing. (Bortle 4, Nikon d5500, Samyang 135mm, 64 lights and 24 darks, stacked in Siril). Very happy with the results from the addition of MSMs polarscope. Using the universal bracket for lazer and polarscope also makes things tidy, lightweight, and easy to setup.
Love the laser pointer and the brackets. Fit perfectly. It gets the alignment done in seconds. I could track 2 min exposure with my 50mm lens and get pinpoint stars. Highly recommend it!
MSM is a lightweight star tracker for travel and is easy to use.
I still have the first version of the laser and got this one as it is adjustable. The laser seems well made but I still need to play with it a bit more as I’m getting 2 different alignments using the same bracket between version 1 and version 2.
This looks so much better than those 3d printed options available on "the bay". The finer lines should (hopefully) help to get a more precise focus. Can't wait to test this on a W/A lens - just need some clear nights.
solid, steady wedge, fitted to existing tripod without need for any additional bits. really nice bit of kit!
Does exactly what it claims, and my setup was really easy. The tripod makes a huge difference to my photography. I definitely recommend this tripod and attachments. Fabulous.
