#Upgraded in Aug. 2020#

Hi Friends,

Seeing that many of you would like to have a laser pointer with its laser as straight as possible, finally, we've upgraded the laser pointer to an adjustable version. It's also smaller than the previous version. 

So, if you mainly play with wide lenses, it works for your lenses without adjustment.

If you may use a longer focus lens sometimes, you can adjust the laser beam then.
Here's the instructions on how to do it: https://www.moveshootmove.com/blogs/faqs-in-general/how-to-adjust-the-beam-of-the-adjustable-laser-pointer

Regarding the battery for the new star pointer, it's a 14250 3.6V battery.
A battery comes with the star pointer, put in it already, it's rechargeable, so you can also charge it if you want.

Clear Skies,
Move Shoot Move team, 2020.08.25

  • Switch to the newest plastic screw for the mount to protect your Rotator's surface from scratch.

 

ATTENTION:

Star Pointer for Polar Alignment

The star pointer(2nd gen) really improved the speed of polar alignment. It came with an adapter for mounting to the body of the MSM rotator.
2 small items would make this perfect.
1. I noticed there were some play with the adapter when the laser was tighten down with the plastic screw. A piece of tape was all it needed to fix the issue.
2. It would be nice to have an option to buy a battery charger thru the MSM site along with the laser.

Adjustable Laser Pointer

This works very well. The adjustment screws did their job. When combined with the Polar scope and wedge, alignment is now very easy.

Excellent laser

With this laser pointer you can align the MSM more precisely than before. I wish this option would have existed at my original purchase.

Star pointer worth every cent

A simple idea that I use all the time. A laser pointer to do quick polar alignment is about as easy to use as it gets. It is all you need for wide field of view photography. If you want to do deep space photography (narrow view) it also helps you greatly... gets you 99% aligned so you can fine tune with the polar scope.

Star pointer

The laser light is very bright, and makes it seriously easy to align on Polaris. Can't be any quicker.
