If your idea of astrophotography is capturing the MilkyWay in all its glory and magnificence, then the MSM star tracker does the job perfectly . It’s fairy to use , and as long as you get your polar alignment right , you’re well on your way capturing trail free and sharp MilkyWay shots .
Being small and light, it’s the perfect addition to your camera gear .
It’s the ideal stepping stone star tracker to use to really learn star tracking before going to the next level with advanced star trackers for deep sky photography.
I recommend the Quick Polar Finder for Skywatcher Star Adventurer 2i. The laser pointer system is much quicker and easire to use than the optical polar scope included with the Skywatcher Star Adventurer 2i. You can easily align precisely in just a few minutes - and do not need the clumsy Skywatcher illuminator that requires emoving tthe payload to attach. The MSM Quick Polar Finder is well made and can accept recargeable batteries.
Once again, MSM comes through with their speedy shipping and great customer service in getting me the parts I forgot to order.
Always a pleasure doing business with them!
Purchasing the Move Shoot Move has been the best thing I have done to improve my astrophotography. It is simple to set up and use and helps me to take better cleaner images. A great purchase for anyone wanting to improve their nightscape photography.
Perfect for the setup i use. Easy to use and compact, what else can i say.
To be able to use the MSM in the best possible way you absolutely need this accessory. Improved compared to the previous one, easier to use. In short, it cannot be missing in the astrophotography kit
It's a great little device, does help me to focus my camera, excellent bit of kit 👍
It's a small device that will help me to take great pictures of the night sky. By tracking the stars, I can reduce the ISO value on my camera and get a better detail as a final result.
The device is really compact and I've found it very hardy and well built. There are no gaps or movements between the body and the rotary plate. Once the Polar alignment has been set, it's possible to shot the sky even with 70mm of focal lenght. I have tried it with good ressults, and I will keep improving the technique.
I think that's a good star tracker to start wit, and easy to use.
I have no issues with the laser itself - but, it will work for "rough pointing" of the Adventurer 2i to the destination star. The exact alignment - still must depend on visual sighting with the polar scope. But for wide angle photography (24mm and wider) - where accurate alignment is not that necessary - it works.
Getting spare batteries and a charger is more problematic - not easy to find.
Very convenient and full of application possibilities. Thank you Alyn and well done.
