Difference between NOMAD and MSM Rotator:

  1. Improved attachment points. The previous manufacturing tolerances were fine for Astro-landscape but deep-sky needs a firmer foundation.

    1. The MSM Rotator, due to its design, required specific weight positioning to keep the ball head secure; this has been completely eliminated.  

    2. The laser now screws into the tracker eliminating any chance of wobble.  

    3. The industry standard quick-release plate on the bottom is secured in 2 places preventing any twisting of the tracker on its mount.  

  2. Improved load capacity.  

    1. The hardware has been built to withstand twice the amount of torque as the MSM Rotator. 

    2. Where the MSM Rotator was only designed for wide-angle Astro-landscape, the NOMAD has been designed with wide-field deep-sky use in mind.  

    3. Availability of an optional counterweight system for more experienced users to go even deeper.

  3. Simplified operation.  By designing and building a device with a narrower focus we were able to make it better while keeping the size down.

    1. One 3-position switch; Northern hemisphere, Southern, or Off.  

    2. In order to improve on our goals of ease of use and portability, the non-tracker function of the MSM Rotator has been left off, greatly simplifying the operation of the new tracker.  

    3. The NOMAD is focused on one function, star tracking.   (NOMAD does not have timelapse mode) 

  4. Reduced size and weight.  A foremost feature of our trackers is portability. 

    1. Our users take our trackers with them even when backpacking to some of the most remote areas of the world. 

    2. We worked to make storing and transporting the tracker even easier so you'll always want to have it with you when traveling.

    3. The tracker is called NOMAD for a reason; it is designed to travel with you wherever you go.

MSM Nomad and Alyn Wallace V-bracket

What a nice tracker this is! What I like most is the combination of accuracy and simplicity. The laser alignment with Polaris is very simple and after a 1,5 hour shoot I checked again with the laser and it was still practically "spot on"! Product wise it is a great tool and easy to carry. The delivery process was a bit of a surprise, it was stated that the product would be shipped from a European warehouse. This appeared not to be the case , it was shipped directly from HK. The feedback on the delivery state was not up to date so I was concerned about timely delivery. It was a pleasantly surprise that the delivery was unannounced yet still in time! The Alyn Wallace V-bracket is okay however you need to really tighten the hinge. I made certain the camera was as close to the hinge as possible to reduce the torque, in the end I made an extra stud to create a triangle at the exact angle of my Latitude (Amsterdam) so my camera is leveled and rock solid. Thanks to MSM customer support to explain the situation on the warehouse situation (apparently demand is so high that there was no stock in Europe). If communication on delivery status would have been okay it would be 5 star.

Compact and well constructed star tracker

Very easy to use and very flexible ways to mount camera. Laser pointer and polar scope with right angle adapter worked flawlessly. Good job in tracking stars.

Simple setup and precise tracking

The laser method to set the tracking is super fast and precise. I use to shoot milky way with 14mm and now I can track for even 5 minutes!

Best service ever!

Not only are the MSN Nomad and Rotator the best simple lightweight trackers out there, the service from Hanna is just beyond belief. I had a minor issue with a laser and she also assisted me with a discount on gear I had already purchased and she was just sensational. Great reliable equipment backed up with the best service on the planet. You can't ask for more than that.
