The origin of the NOMAD Tracker is based on user feedback and our desire to provide the easiest-to-use, most portable, inexpensive star tracker.  


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.  

The Best Portable Star Tracking Solution for Everyone

For novices, we want it to be the best easy-to-use star tracker;

For experienced astrophotographers, we want it to be the most travel-friendly tracker.

 

But, if users want the old Timelapse functionality, then we may be able to provide pre-orders of the MSM rotator. We’re sorry, but we can not strengthen the star tracker ability and time-lapse ability at the same time. The hardware requirements for improving both of these functions are contradictory.

The best first star tracker

I bought the Nomad as my first startracker and find it excellent. It is extremely compact and - in my experience to date - very precise. If accurate positioning is performed, i.e. correct tripod levelling and careful polar alignment is performed, it also handles focal lengths of 200mm. So far I have achieved exposure times of about 60 seconds with 200mm without movement, but I’m sure I can go even further. I suggest the complete configuration, with laser pointer and polar scope. Highly recommended.

Nomad msm

Recently received my nomad msm. Found the set up was easy with the photo pils app (I am in the southern hemisphere) I have only had a few opportunities to fiddle around with the nomad and very happy with the results. Looking forward to the opportunities that it will deliver.

Un pequeño aparato maravilloso

El Nomad es pequeño, no pesa, cabe en cualquier sitio. Es perfecto para llevar de viaje. Me ha sorprendido la duración de la pila. Estoy encantado con él.
Hasta ahora solo lo he podido probar con geandes angulares y ge podido gacee exposiciones de hasta 3 y 4 minutos. En fin, que más decir, estoy muy contento con su compra. Un saludo amigos.

Nomad and phone attachment

Really pleased with the performance of the rotator, operates perfectly
The only issue is that in the dark I managed to loose on of the tiny white screws that hole phone and polariscope holder Suggest you supply spares in future
