Simple to Assemble

I did a test run of putting my new Nomad & Ball Head together, to get to know my new gear. Following the image of what everything is meant to look like, I put it together no worries. The gear seems sturdy enough. Now I just have to wait for clear skies so I can get out and use it. I’ve been waiting 6 weeks so far. It’s either clouds or a full moon. lol.

Solid, simple, ball head

Move Shoot Move has a high quality little ball head. It lets you quickly point your camera in any direction, including straight up. It locks your camera down, holding it steady on anything in the sky or on the ground for that matter.

Excellent rotator.

It did a wonderful job of tracking the April 8th eclipse (once I figured out how to mount the camera to it). The ball head was a tricky thing to get right, (instructions would be nice). Overall, well worth the price.

Not easy to set up

Always a pain to get set up but works well. Love the small size and the polar
Alignment is easy

Works exceptionally well - with a learning curve!

The long, 10 day delivery via China Post and SPS was expected so the MSM arrived in a timely manner. Tested both rotations (star tracker and MSM) and worked properly. My real interest is in the MSM function, so I began shooting some MSM timelapse. Took a bit to get everything properly set up. Watch the online tutorials. Quite helpful.

I have several ball heads. Set up with the wedge on a heavy duty tripod and a Siri ballhead worked well.

As I power both my camera (Nikon D500) and my Timelapse+ ramping driver by externam power, I decided to also power the MSM externally. That worked well, as expected. My Timelapse + can drive the MSM, so I connected the two with a TRS cable. Took an experiment to determine which of the two 2.5 mm ports to use, but the camera port worked. And, of course, I didn't set the rotation in the correct direction - learning curve!

I have more experimentation run to learn which MSM step size works best and how to select the rotation angle to get the TL composition I want.

I also have the alignment tools to play with star tracking. Plan to do some in the near future. I have the angle viewer for the scope in transit right now. This should be included in a kit.

Also, the number of 1/4-20 to 3/8th and 3/8th to 3/8th adapters should be increased. Easily lost and you never have enough. 6 of each in the kit would be a real plus.

Overall, exceedingly well engineered and supported. See photos for my MSM set up.

Nomad is a great Astrophotography tool.

If only had Tim to use my Nomad a couple of times and it has produced awesome Milky Way photos. It’s is very small and compact and easy to use. I love it.

Did not do its job. (Was talking about the rotator not the ballhead)

Ballhead was perfect basically 👌🏻

Milky Way Imaging Made Easy

The MSM takes a little figuring out - partly because there are so many choices about how to use it and what gear, exactly, you'll want. Hint: the mounting between tripod and MSM unit is the key part for alignment. I strongly suggest using the Benro geared head, though it's pricey, instead of a ball or the wedge. This is especially true for deep sky stuff where a polar scope will be needed. Second choice would be the wedge, trickier than the Benro but still better than a ball. Ball mount is fine up top for the camera. The Z plate is very handy for improving the adjustable range of the camera itself, once this contraption is assembled. Tracking works perfectly, tack-sharp stars even in the corners with a 3 minute exposure or longer. Not sure about MSM for very heavy gear / long lenses. Will test that later this year.

Z bracket and ball head

MSM service was excellent, the items arrived promptly and in perfect condition, as advertised.
The ball head is great. Light and solid.
The Z brackets are good, but difficult to tighten all the screws, and I lack confidence that it's rigid in use. It could be that I need to learn to use it properly, it's early days.
