Great accessory!

Perfect for shooting angles or vertical. Locks in place and holds your camera securely. Well made but light and durable.

Love the Z

Such a great product, I bought 2! Theyโ€™re versatile and extremely well designed. The thought that went into this and the execution to follow is admirable. I recommend these to everyone I speak to in photography.

Good idea, need improvements

Attaching the V bracket seams not secure and over time the thread loosen up

Must have wherever you live

Even at 60 degrees north I ran into issues with my MSM and a small ballhead. Solved with the z-mount, which gives more flexibility than the v-mount. I use the v-mount for my macro setup instead.

Not Enough Objective Experience

In the last 3 expeditions I attempted during the latter part of the ME season, I could not get aligned with Polaris in the northern sky (even though the southern sky was good to go) so have no real objective data. Since then, have learned to align with Polaris using an inclinometer and compass adjusting for magnetic deviation variation and will therefore have no excuse...assuming the MW is unclear view.

Estรกn buenรญsimos!

Desde que los tengo se los recomiendo a todo el mundo. La comodidad que se gana al fotografiar paisajes sobre un tracker hacen valer cada centavo la inversiรณn. Hasta ahora el que mรกs usรฉ fue el V, todavรญa no encontrรฉ una situaciรณn que me justifique el peso extra del Z. Pero sin dudas es algo obligado a tener para los que hacen paisajes sobre tracker

Z&V mounts

These mounts are well designed and well built. Together they provide versatility for balance and angles on a tripod

So easy to use!

Up till now I only used it once but the setup was very simple and it was so easy to do the polar alignment. Pin sharp stars up to four minutes with a wide angle lens. Canโ€™t wait to use it early 2023.

Alum Wallace Z-plate

I bought the MoveShoot Move Z-plate to place it between the tracker and the cameraโ€™s ball head. I did this to allow myself additional flexibility aligning the camera to the target. With the latches firmly closed, the Z-plate is stiff and doesnโ€™t not move although having it greatly extended can make it feel more flexible. I like the Z-plate and think it a good addition to my kit.

22 Uses for Z mount

To be honest, besides the Astro usage, we've never thought it could benefit the slider users those much until we received the below reviews!


For low angle and macro usage, we've never thought it too.


Thank you for all your brilliant find out.ย  It encourages us a lot.

Hi Friends,


For months we have been refining a new product designed together with professional landscape astrophotographer,ย 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.

-Itโ€™s also difficult to do panoramas, regardless of latitude.

The Solution

Adding a โ€œStar Tracker Platformโ€ so that the ball head becomes level. The angle can be adjustedย 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 mechanismย to lock the angled platform and also the rotating base.

ย 

2nd Version, Enlarged the center rotationย section.

3rd version,

- Wrapped theย rotating disc to prevent dust entering.

- Changed screw to handle.

4th Version,

Addedย 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

V or Z? Which Should You Buy?ย 
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?ย 

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 platformย 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.
