The Wedge is a must! It simplifies polar alignment, and makes it more accurate!
It has helped me get 2 minute exposures with a 135mm lens, and all exposures had pin sharp stars
Makes polar alignment a breeze with its small and precise movements. I used to spend ages with a ballhead aligning only for it drop slightly whilst tightening. None of these problems with the wedge. It’s an essential accessory to the move shoot move.
Wedge for precise polar alignment
The Wedge for precise polar alignment makes it a lot easier to get an accurate alignment. It’s night and day compared to a ball head and also a lot easier than using a two-dimensional panorama head.
The Msm starter kit set up was already very easy to use but for me the wedge makes the process of polar alignment mush easier and faster!
Using the Wedge Geared Tripod Head made the precise alignment of Polaris super easy. My biggest complaint about using ball heads as a support for the MSM and Polar Scope was the hit and miss movement to keep Polaris within the Polar Scope grid. With the Wedge and the geared precision movement, alignment was smooth and accurate.
My suggestion for improvement would be to replace the left and right movement screw knobs with a single screw knob that adjusted movement by a left or right turn.
It works well. I arrive without problems.
it works. it allows for slow incremental adjustments during setup. if it is not self evident they have/had instructions available
I am totally in love with the MSM wedge, it's a must have accessory to the tracker. The wedge simply makes polar alignment a breeze! So happy I bought it!
