Product Information


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

  • Mount For Polar Scope A/B (with built-in hot shoe adapter)

    Very good product

    The polar scope fits perfectly the MSM body and it is quite easy to use. There are a lot of instructions on the web and apps on how to use it and where to put the polaris. Now I prefer to add also the 90° eyepiece to make the polar alignment more easy and without wetting my knees

    It is good but calibrating is a not easy.

    So far having issues with calibrating, it is really hard to get it to get it centre aligned while rotating it. I ordered the new holder, and hope that will be better.

    The additional polar scope mount and red light arrived quickly and serve well.

    Good portable tracker, user manual is poor and accessories are OK but do not match the shown use ...

    I used this tracker for wide field photography and was very happy with my results but when I tried a longer focal length lens I could not get it to work right with the green laser pointer as there is too much wiggle room and the laser setting is not very fixed. I then realized I need to buy the polar alignment scope. which works better for longer focal length photography. I love that its all small and portable but I do not like that the user manual is horrible and leaves too much unanswered. I had to use U Tube and watch multiple videos but I still dont know the best recommended way to use it.

    Polar Scope with illuminator - for use in Southern hemisphere

    I ordered the polar scope to help align my tracker in remote NZ with no phone signal or internet connection.

    The product is well made and communication throughout order/delivery process was excellent.

    I have only used the scope under Bortle class 1 skies and it works very well. Compared to finding Polaris in the Northern hemisphere, Sigma Octantis is far fainter and not as easy to find, however with a bit of practice I have found I can now accurately align my tracker in under 5 minutes, on a clear night.

    Note: I use the polar scope with the wedge to enable very small accurate adjustments.

    Great products

    I‘m very happy and satisfied with the great products

    Now it's perfect

    The Polar scope with illuminator has finally arrived!
    Now I can be even more accurate in aiming :D

    The shoot move is already excellent in its "Kit B" configuration where the fast laser pointer is included, but with this scope I can get even better performance!!!
