The tracker is really easy to use and able to work with the Wedge to support very fine polar alignment
I’ve been impressed with this compact star tracker. It has been a help for gathering more light and detail for Milky Way images without introducing noise.
Polar alignment is a breeze with this wedge. Not only is the product amazing but also customer support is solid.
I just recently received the Wedge. Yes, it is a precision tool. I am very happy about it. I was always tightening and loosening ball valves and never quite able to get the set-up exact. The Wedge allows me to move the polar alignment tools with precision. Thanks!
Anyone committed enough to night photography that has purchased MSM's inimitable Star Tracker will soon discover that the Wedge is the perfect solution for a challenge you might not have known you'd have in aligning your equipment. And of course the maker of the Star Tracker knows exactly what is needed to make it excel. Like a lot of photographers, I had extra ballheads to use for this purpose, but the Wedge just does everything better.
The wedge is a nice addition to the MSM. It allows easy and accurate polar alignment. I first start with laser alignment, then use the polar scope. The wedge makes it easy to get precise alignment.
..dopo il laser, il Polar Scope, il "Wedge for precise polar alignment" è lo strumento FONDAMENTALE per usare l'MSM al massimo! Lo consiglio a chiunque voglia fare davvero pose con lunga esposizione!
Facile da usare (Finalmente il setup è completo)
Précis et solide. Bon rapport poids/taille/fonction. Peut servir en plus des étoiles pour la macro entre autre... permet un cadrage précis pour toute situation le demandant.
The new polar alignment wedge is a robust device that makes fine adjustments in polar aligning the MSM much easier than the base model.
I decided not to buy the wedge with the polar scope at first. I told myself I could align with a ballhead.. no you can't, just buy the wedge If you're going to use the polar scope for precision alignment. It's a must. 5 Stars thanks msm for the amazing customer service and help.
