I have used the Z-plate a few times now. I like the flexibility it gives for positioning and helping keep the camera system balanced on the MSM. It is definitely a must in my MSM kit.
Wedge for precise polar alignment
Quality has improved a lot
I currently use the Sky Watcher Star Adventurer 2I and it's a decent tracker but it does lack a laser to help when you want to setup quickly. The MSM laser attachment helps to have everything setup within minutes. I manage 3 minute exposures at 135mm just by using th laser.
It is very well made, light weight and functional.
To be clear the Rotator works great it's easy once it's set up it just works. For me the thing that's difficult is actual alignment I know there's a lot of videos trying to make this look easy but where I live I cannot see Polaris, so I've purchased the cell phone extension thing that I'm supposed to put on the back that helps me use an app like photopills to align. I think these apps are probably not very good and so because of that my alignment is not very good. I can't blame the device for this the device works great it would just be good if I could get some type of tools that would make alignment better, I looked at options like mounting an electronic polar scope onto the wedge but I can't figure anything out like that. Returning to the actual move shoot move device it works great the battery lasts a long time it's pretty easy to use. I have not tried this with anything other than a wide field DSLR
I bought this for my other brand skytracker but it doesn't fit on it. The pointer works great so I will need to buy a MVM to use it.
The Item fits perfect to my StarAdventurer. The quality seems to be quiet strong. The produkt seems to be well thougt out, too. So I think it's absolutely worth it.

If your idea of astrophotography is capturing the MilkyWay in all its glory and magnificence, then the MSM star tracker does the job perfectly . It’s fairy to use , and as long as you get your polar alignment right , you’re well on your way capturing trail free and sharp MilkyWay shots .
Being small and light, it’s the perfect addition to your camera gear .
It’s the ideal stepping stone star tracker to use to really learn star tracking before going to the next level with advanced star trackers for deep sky photography.
I recommend the Quick Polar Finder for Skywatcher Star Adventurer 2i. The laser pointer system is much quicker and easire to use than the optical polar scope included with the Skywatcher Star Adventurer 2i. You can easily align precisely in just a few minutes - and do not need the clumsy Skywatcher illuminator that requires emoving tthe payload to attach. The MSM Quick Polar Finder is well made and can accept recargeable batteries.
