Move Shoot Move Z mount review
Slider user's review

Hi Friends,

For months we have been refining a new product designed together with professional landscape astrophotographer, Alyn Wallace (website). Now, we're ready for pre-order.

Below is a quick review of the journey, we hope you enjoy:

On the 14th June 2020, MSM ambassador Alyn Wallace told us that he has an idea for a new star tracker platform to solve the following problems:

The Problem:

- When at latitudes close to the equator it becomes very difficult to use the ball head on top of a star tracker.

-It’s also difficult to do panoramas, regardless of latitude.

The Solution

Adding a “Star Tracker Platform” so that the ball head becomes level. The angle can be adjusted and locked into place and the platform can also be rotated. The platform is a perfect match for the Move Shoot Move rotator but also works with any star tracker..

Later, we researched all the possible alternative solutions, practicing and using, finally came to the first version as below:

1st Version, mainly verifying the mechanism to lock the angled platform and also the rotating base.

 

2nd Version, Enlarged the center rotation section.

3rd version,

- Wrapped the rotating disc to prevent dust entering.

- Changed screw to handle.

4th Version,

Added more space for the bottom handle, so we can operate with gloves.

And Finally, the final 5th Version, with some minor improvements to launch the production.

Below is the performance of the MSM Platform

Work as a tripod head

 Alyn Wallace Z platform

V or Z? Which Should You Buy? 

The V and Z platforms both solve the problem of having your ballhead at an awkward angle when on a star tracker. So what's the difference? 

The V platform is for those who want to save weight. If you're already using a heavy setup you may not have much room to add weight on top of the MSM which has a payload of 3kg.

The Z platform has the added benefit of being able to be used to replace the ball head on a tripod when not using a star tracker at all. You can also use the Z platform as a table-top tripod. So it's an exchange of versatility for a little added weight.

MSM ZMount

This mount is so easy to use. I don't have to use a ball head with it. Perfect for my tripod and I bought a second one for my gimball. Love it.

Lovely little device to swing your camera in two axies and fitted with decent lever clamps to ensure the settings don’t move.Time will tell but I hope the clamps stay strong over time.

Better than before

I just used another type of tracker. But I wasn’t justified. Not ease to use and too heavy. Not made for outdoor use with backpack.
Now everything changed. The results are better than before.
Now I hope for good weather to use it more.

Star tracker with great value for money

I achieved 2 min exposures using a 20mm lens with very little trailing. I used mobile-based alignment (most inaccurate way). I am very satisfied,

Not good!

I tested the platform with my panoramic head (750 grams) and my camera without lens (800 grams), but the platform lost its position! In my opinion, the maximum load declared for this platform is too high, because in my case, 1.5 kg was too much! Despite the many positive reviews, I lost interest in buying the rotator due to these results!

Don’t hesitate with great items

Just what you would expect, quality items. The locking knob provides the best I have seen, as it is easy to set up and feel confidant it will not slip. Will defiantly buy again and recommend for anyone who wishes to buy quality.

Amazing addition to my took kit!

I LOVE these. They are easy to use and portable. I like having having both a lighter and a more sturdy option. The levers are easy to adjust and the options are endless on how these can be used. I have not tested these with a heavier set ups but so far I have been very happy having these as additional or alternative mounting options. These handy little mounts have earned a permanent place in my camera bag.

Long Time MSM Fan!

I've used so many of this companies products for my astrophotography, night sky, and light painting projects including both the Move-Shoot-Move and Nomad Rotators with great results. The accessory choices available allow you to customize your kit to your style.

Great build quality.

I was extremely impressed with the build quality of the Nomad. The size and simplicity is a game changer. I can see this taking off as people realise just how easy it can be to take things to the next level and adding start star tracking to their repertoire.
