Hi friends,

Thanks to Mr.Steven who kept pushing us on this, also thanks to Stephen Dyer, he suggested this mount from last year.

Finally, it's ready!

If you are in the Southern Hemisphere, this phone mount is a must-have.

Please feel free to contact us anytime, any questions.

Cheers,

John

Why do I need it?

Actually there are many cases when laser pointers or polar scopes are not possible in field, so polar alignment with phone apps is quite convenient from this aspect and a phone mount is in need then.

Here are some common situations when you would like to use it:

  • in countries like Australia and Switzerland where laser pointers are mostly banned
  • when buildings, mountains, etc. blocking the sky ahead of you that you could not point to Polaris
  • in locations such as airports and observatories where laser pointers are not allowed

 

For polar alignment with phones, the Phone Mount is adjustable, easy to use, and light-weight, with the phone-holder part free to rotate.

  • free to rotate the phone-holder part
  • extendable grip enabling to adjust the phone-holder part for your phone size
  • soft padding to securely holds your device
  • fit for both 3/8"-16 and 1/4"-20 screws

 

Specifications:

Wide compatibility: 62mm-90mm, 4.5”-7.3”

Max load: 2kg

Item weight: 0.352lbs(0.16kg)

Material: aluminum alloy

 

How to do polar alignment with phones?

  1. Set up well your Rotator and camera.
  2. Mount the Phone Mount to the Rotator, your phone to the Phone Mount.
  3. Open a planetarium app and go to its AR feature, look for North/South Pole(depends on the hemisphere you're in) with the app. 
4. Adjust your setup's gesture until your phone is aligned with polar on the app.

    There you go, ready to shoot!

     

     

    How to mount it?

    1. Screw the Phone Mount onto a rig, the side of the Rotator facing at the ground in the case of polar alignment.
    2. Mount your phone to it and lock it well by controlling the knobs.
    3. Align the edge of your phone with the edge of the Rotator.
    4. Lock the position by rotating the knob on the other side compared to your phone.

    I live in Australia and being located in the Southern hemisphere i am using MSM phone mount. It was very easy to setup with the tracker. Never had any problem for using it with my phone and Photopills app. Highly recommended.

    Excellent

    This allows me to calibrate north when I am at home. Because there are houses that hide the north

    Phone mount

    Didn't really work up to now with the phone mount polar alignment while I'm in the northern hemisphere. Nevertheless, I'm sure it works well but I would have appreciate that this accessory come with a screw to fix it on the msm. Something like a screw that can be fixed by hands. The one I found ask for a screwdriver, a tool that I rarely carry in my pockets....

    Phone Mount Works Very Well

    Phone Mount is very easy and quickly to set up, which I then aligned using Polar Scope Align Pro app. Tracking 30 seconds images to stack at 20mm becomes very easy.
