Why do I need it?

Actually, there are many cases when laser pointers or polar scopes are not possible in field, so polar alignment with phone apps is quite convenient from this aspect and a phone mount is in need then.

Here are some common situations when you would like to use it:

  • in countries like Australia and Switzerland where laser pointers are mostly banned
  • when buildings, mountains, etc. blocking the sky ahead of you that you could not point to Polaris
  • in locations such as airports and observatories where laser pointers are not allowed

 

For polar alignment with phones, the Phone Mount is adjustable, easy to use, and light-weight, with the phone-holder part free to rotate.

  • free to rotate the phone-holder part
  • extendable grip enabling to adjust the phone-holder part for your phone size
  • soft padding to securely holds your device
  • fit for both 3/8"-16 and 1/4"-20 screws

 

Specifications:

Wide compatibility: 60mm-93mm, 2.36”-3.66”

Arca-Swiss compatible: Yes

Max load: 2kg

Item weight: 0.352lbs(0.16kg)

Material: aluminum alloy

 

How to mount it?

For NOMAD,

Please choose the option of phone mount + phone mount adapter, then you can use this phone mount on NOMAD.

 This option is for preorder, it should be ready around 15th Dec. 

1) Please remove the red cap on the backside of NOMAD first

2) Attach the phone mount adapter to the backside of NOMAD by the red cap

3) Slide the phone mount into the phone mount holder part and tighten it by the nylon screw

4) Attach your phone to the Phone mount holder, align the edges of phone to the edges of NOMAD

5) Use apps like Stellarium or Photopills to find the alignment target Polaris/ NCP Northern Hemisphere or SCP for the Southern Hemisphere.

6) Follow the arrow guide of the app then adjust the setup for polar alignment

For MSM tracker:

Please use the 3/8 screw coming with the tracker to attach the phone mount to the bubble level side.

 

How to do polar alignment with phones?

Please directly check the video guide here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Ycn7IuChTIWYfyvZxAaVLttTkx5GaibM/view?usp=sharing

  1. Set up well your Rotator and camera.
  2. Mount the Phone Mount to the Rotator, your phone to the Phone Mount.
  3. Open a planetarium app and go to its AR feature, look for North/South Pole(depends on the hemisphere you're in) with the app. 
4. Adjust your setup's gesture until your phone is aligned with polar on the app.

    There you go, ready to shoot!

    It's a great cell phone holder for doing videos with a tripod (as well as for polar alignment)

    It works very good for polar alignment BUT I also discovered that it is fantastic to mount a phone on a tripod for videos or other uses. Being able to rotate between horizontal and vertical is a plus but the ball head connector enables me to get the precise angle I need.

    Full kit

    Purchased the full kit and v plate . Arrived well packaged and on time . Only had a couple of clear nights so far but very impressed with everything, looking forward to more clear nights and learning about the night skies and using the Nomad . Impressed how well it tracked the stars .

    Phone mount Kit

    Excellent add on to the Nomad for those of us in the Southern Hemisphere or where you cannot use a laser to polar align. Works really well and does not add much weight to the set up and is simple. Ideal when coupled with the phone bracket which I already had.

    Not accurate enough for the eclipse

    The Day Time Polar Align kit is easy to use, but it is not accurate enough to keep the sun in frame during an eclipse. Anyone want mine? Just pay shipping.
