Wunderbar leichtes Gerät für die Sternenfotografie.
I have used my MSM several times in the field and I am delighted with the results I have obtained with it. The instructions come with hints on how to test your MSM before trying it out in the field and I consider that time well worth spent. I now use my MSM to pohtograph constellations and some deep sky objects. It takes little practice to lean how ot set up, calibrate, and run a set of photographic sequences. The laser pointer is simple to point to Polaris and holds its alignment very well for whots of up to a minute (I have not tried longer yet). I have had success with a Samyang 14mm and a Sigma 50mm Art lens. I will be pushing the boundaries of this little star tracker with longer exposure times and a Samyang 135mm lens. The MSM came well packed, ready to go, and I have not had any trouble with it yet. My main niggle is, that the instructions are rather difficult to make sense of - though it is worth the time and effort to read. Additionally, the laser pointer I received does not see to want to be properly calibrated - it is off center after adjustment. While this has not been a problem with wide field photography, I am concerned about using the 135mm lens as it is. Despite all of that, I heartily recommend the MSM. It is a more than capable travel star tracker and will remain in my collection indefinitely for those grab-and-go moments.
Polar scope replaced by MSM very swiftley (thankyou MSM). Unfortunately I haven't had the chance to use yet due to usual problems with weather in UK.
producto muy adecuado a mis pretenciones y sobre todo el trato exquisito de todos los que componen la empresa muchas gracias por todo los que estan hay siempre al servicio y a resorver todas las cuestiones y dudas.
Polar Scope and Accessories
With the Polar Scope, polar alignment is much more accurate and helps me taking longer exposure with my tracker. highly recommended.
I had heard polar alignment was difficult, putting the right angle adapter on it makes it a breeze. I’ve had 3 minute exposures with no star trails and perfect alignment within 90 seconds
For my photography MSM is great addition and mist have fie the start with astrophotography
I love my new polar scope. Even when not calibrated, this little gizmo allowed me to do precise polar allignment on 200-300 mm focal lenght. With help of Polar clock app, polar allignment is super easy.
Do not forget to buy angle viewfinder.
MSM gear is amazing for the cost. Nothing I have found outperforms it without spending a great deal more. AND, one of the biggest advantages is the FaceBook user group. There is so much info available for Noobs that it gets you up and operational quickly.
