Product Information

Overview

In order for any star tracker to work the way it's designed, polar alignment has to be done in the first place. It is the act of aligning the rotation axis of a star tracker in parallel with Earth's self-spin axis. How do you know when your Move Shoot Move Star Tracker's rotation axis is aligned? Well, the Polar Scope we have here does just that!


Polar Scope A Package

If you only have a MSM Star Tracker, which means you don't have a Pointer, a polar scope mount or a polar scope illuminator, this is the go-to package for you. It includes all the accessories needed to do polar alignment on a MSM Star Tracker:
  • Polar Scope A
  • Mount For Polar Scope A/B (with built-in hot shoe adapter)
  • Polar Scope A Illuminator (3D printed)

    My favourite tracker to date!

    I have used my MSM several times in the field and I am delighted with the results I have obtained with it. The instructions come with hints on how to test your MSM before trying it out in the field and I consider that time well worth spent. I now use my MSM to pohtograph constellations and some deep sky objects. It takes little practice to lean how ot set up, calibrate, and run a set of photographic sequences. The laser pointer is simple to point to Polaris and holds its alignment very well for whots of up to a minute (I have not tried longer yet). I have had success with a Samyang 14mm and a Sigma 50mm Art lens. I will be pushing the boundaries of this little star tracker with longer exposure times and a Samyang 135mm lens. The MSM came well packed, ready to go, and I have not had any trouble with it yet. My main niggle is, that the instructions are rather difficult to make sense of - though it is worth the time and effort to read. Additionally, the laser pointer I received does not see to want to be properly calibrated - it is off center after adjustment. While this has not been a problem with wide field photography, I am concerned about using the 135mm lens as it is. Despite all of that, I heartily recommend the MSM. It is a more than capable travel star tracker and will remain in my collection indefinitely for those grab-and-go moments.

    Great product for a reasonable price.

    With the Polar Scope, polar alignment is much more accurate and helps me taking longer exposure with my tracker. highly recommended.

    Super easy to align

    I had heard polar alignment was difficult, putting the right angle adapter on it makes it a breeze. I’ve had 3 minute exposures with no star trails and perfect alignment within 90 seconds

    lovely gizmo

    I love my new polar scope. Even when not calibrated, this little gizmo allowed me to do precise polar allignment on 200-300 mm focal lenght. With help of Polar clock app, polar allignment is super easy.
    Do not forget to buy angle viewfinder.

    Great quality at an even greater price

    MSM gear is amazing for the cost. Nothing I have found outperforms it without spending a great deal more. AND, one of the biggest advantages is the FaceBook user group. There is so much info available for Noobs that it gets you up and operational quickly.
