What our users say about this panorama version?
"This is built like a tank, yet it's very compact and light weight and very easy to use. It's built for serious photographers. You can have your camera trigger it when you shoot, or you can directly plug in your intervalometer into it and have maximum customization that way. It's really a three in one unit, star rotator, time lapse rotator, and it can be use to take perfectly spaced images to make panos or HDR panos. It can be mounted horizontally, so the screen is perpendicular to the floor. Or, on the side so it's pointing right up when you are trying to line it up with polaris (in the norther hemisphere) to get perfect star trails. ."

How to Choose the Ideal Gear for Your Astro-Landscape Photography?
Regarding the laser pointer:
- If you are a new player, we recommend choosing the laser pointer as a start. It's easier to do the polar alignment for new players. (Laser Pointer's output is <1mw, please check above label)
- If you mainly play with a wide-angle lens, then the laser pointer is enough and the most convenient for you.
- If you are new and have a low budget, you can just buy the Basic kit B to start.
- If you want one ready to shoot Astro kit, then you can buy the Pro kit B.
- If you are experienced, I suppose you've understood how much you can benefit from the Rotator's portability and it's straight forward design.
Do I need to buy the Polar Scope?
- If you play with a long lens, then better add the Polar Scope to do a more accurate polar alignment.
- If you are from Australia, then you should buy the Polar Scope due to it is prohibited in Australia to buy the laser pointer.
- If you may travel to shoot in Australia or some locations that do not allow laser pointer, then better have one Polar Scope for them.
- If you live in Australia, then buy the Phone Kit to start.
- If you just want one ready to go Astro kit for your DSLR, then buy the Pro Kit A.
- The Complete kit is set up support all the above scenes, ready to go and all locations.

Light weight, easy to carry. Took some amazing panorama's of Milky Way this summer. Unit isn't precise enough for deep astrophotography like M31, though I haven't quite pushed the limits or capabilities with image stacking. Easiest to polar align thanks to the laser. I have a sky guider pro and one of these will do a side by side image comparison with the same camera and lens setup for image drifts.
Setup and polar alignment was a breeze
Love it for the compact size, weight and payload capability! Managed to shoot the Neowise Comet at 200mm (Nikon D750 + Nikon 80-200mm f2.8 D) :)
Love it for it's ease of use and features (Star Tracking, Laser Polar Pointer, Time Lapse & Panorama)!
Love it for the low "entry" price and the Battery life! Used for 4 outings before it needed to recharge... and even then I used a mobile charger and kept shooting!
But... it could use a better way of securely attaching a Ball head to the Rotaror's plate! I have ordered a "Screw Knob Clamp with a Quick Release Plate Compatible with Arca Swiss". Both parts have extra off-center that will hopefully "secure" the ball head better... Also, the MSM Wedge option is too expensive compared to the MSM unit's price and the other comparable "better" "Star Adventurer Latitude (EQ) Base".
Having said that... I would still buy the MSM Rotaror if only just to use for Panos, Time Lapses and "rolling" videos! A second MSM unit (Panorama version) would also be great!
Very nice and portable product! plus amazing customer service.
