WIth 8 friction surfaces on angle hinge instead of only 2 or 4 in other similar brackets it grips and hold position really well, so I have added to my kit to replace the current rigid 90 degree bracket to use with horizontal centre pole of tripod for macro close up work Bonus is folded down flat it packs much more conveniently than the rigid bracket and it is similar weight
I bought both the Z and V mounts and was seriously impressed how sturdy they are. The locking screws (if that’s what they are called) do exactly that. With minimal effort they lock the mounts at the required angle and, so far, I haven’t noticed any slippage. They are lightweight and compact, which is ideal when I travel abroad and am limited for both space and weight.
Very durable, flexible, practical function.
Makes you create endless macro photography.
Just loving it more and more.
Highly recommended 👍
Superb piece of kit. Highly versatile. Money very well spent.
at times they are a good solution for alignment and angles
Super shop, everything worked perfectly and delivered super fast
This is a well designed, well engineered little piece of kit which is a joy to use. Makes using the MSM a lot easier.
Very strong mount and easy to use! Highly recommended!
He adquirido una Z mount y estoy encantado. Se acabaron los malabarismos y posturas raras con la rotula de bola y el LBracket. Se ve muy robusto y los tornillos aprietan firmemente todas las articulaciones de la Z mount.
A solid product for a specific purpose. I was worried about the clamping system used to hold it in place. My worries were misplaced. It holds its position without slipping.
To be honest, besides the Astro usage, we've never thought it could benefit the slider users those much until we received the below reviews!
For low angle and macro usage, we've never thought it too.
Thank you for all your brilliant find out. It encourages us a lot.

For months we have been refining a new product designed together with professional landscape astrophotographer, Alyn Wallace (website). Now, we're ready for pre-order.
Below is a quick review of the journey, we hope you enjoy:
On the 14th June 2020, MSM ambassador Alyn Wallace told us that he has an idea for a new star tracker platform to solve the following problems:
- When at latitudes close to the equator it becomes very difficult to use the ball head on top of a star tracker.
-It’s also difficult to do panoramas, regardless of latitude.
Adding a “Star Tracker Platform” so that the ball head becomes level. The angle can be adjusted and locked into place and the platform can also be rotated. The platform is a perfect match for the Move Shoot Move rotator but also works with any star tracker..
Later, we researched all the possible alternative solutions, practicing and using, finally came to the first version as below:
1st Version, mainly verifying the mechanism to lock the angled platform and also the rotating base.
2nd Version, Enlarged the center rotation section.
- Wrapped the rotating disc to prevent dust entering.
- Changed screw to handle.
Added more space for the bottom handle, so we can operate with gloves.
And Finally, the final 5th Version, with some minor improvements to launch the production.
Below is the performance of the MSM Platform

Wait a moment, it may take around 10s to load all gifs.
Work as a tripod head
The V platform is for those who want to save weight. If you're already using a heavy setup you may not have much room to add weight on top of the MSM which has a payload of 3kg.
The Z platform has the added benefit of being able to be used to replace the ball head on a tripod when not using a star tracker at all. You can also use the Z platform as a table-top tripod. So it's an exchange of versatility for a little added weight.
