Purchasing the Move Shoot Move has been the best thing I have done to improve my astrophotography. It is simple to set up and use and helps me to take better cleaner images. A great purchase for anyone wanting to improve their nightscape photography.
Perfect for the setup i use. Easy to use and compact, what else can i say.
To be able to use the MSM in the best possible way you absolutely need this accessory. Improved compared to the previous one, easier to use. In short, it cannot be missing in the astrophotography kit
It's a great little device, does help me to focus my camera, excellent bit of kit 👍
It's a small device that will help me to take great pictures of the night sky. By tracking the stars, I can reduce the ISO value on my camera and get a better detail as a final result.
The device is really compact and I've found it very hardy and well built. There are no gaps or movements between the body and the rotary plate. Once the Polar alignment has been set, it's possible to shot the sky even with 70mm of focal lenght. I have tried it with good ressults, and I will keep improving the technique.
I think that's a good star tracker to start wit, and easy to use.
I have no issues with the laser itself - but, it will work for "rough pointing" of the Adventurer 2i to the destination star. The exact alignment - still must depend on visual sighting with the polar scope. But for wide angle photography (24mm and wider) - where accurate alignment is not that necessary - it works.
Getting spare batteries and a charger is more problematic - not easy to find.
Very convenient and full of application possibilities. Thank you Alyn and well done.
The small size and light weight of the MSM tracker makes it the best for my needs.
Useful tool. My only complaint is the use of non-stainless steel screws to hold it together. The 5 screws that mount the camera plate are already rusting, and it has never been used in a wet environment. This is a pricey bit of kit. A single dollar or two spent on better hardware would have given you 5 stars.
Having used my star tracker for the past two months, I feel I can now give a worthwhile review.
I can honestly say that the MSM rotator has completely changed my astro photography and I’m now achieving the images I always wanted.
The kit is light and compact, easy to operate, and when used with the Benro 3-way geared head and the MSM laser pointer, polar alignment takes just a few seconds. Battery life is also very good, allowing longer sessions in the field. I've exposed images up to 2 minutes without any problems.
In short, the MSM star tracker is a game changer for me. A great piece of kit and real value for money.
