MSMs polarscope is a very nice addition to my portable grab-and-go astrophotography collection. Finally, a chance to experiment with a longer lens! Do a quick alignment with the lazer, and then tune that alignment with the polarscope. With care and patience, it is very quick to polar align and start capturing light. My first light test on Sadr in Cygnus with one minute subs at 135mm show no sign of trailing. (Bortle 4, Nikon d5500, Samyang 135mm, 64 lights and 24 darks, stacked in Siril). Very happy with the results from the addition of MSMs polarscope. Using the universal bracket for lazer and polarscope also makes things tidy, lightweight, and easy to setup.
Love the laser pointer and the brackets. Fit perfectly. It gets the alignment done in seconds. I could track 2 min exposure with my 50mm lens and get pinpoint stars. Highly recommend it!
I still have the first version of the laser and got this one as it is adjustable. The laser seems well made but I still need to play with it a bit more as I’m getting 2 different alignments using the same bracket between version 1 and version 2.
El primero que compré estaba roto por lo que me puse en contacto con MSM y rápidamente me repusieron por uno nuevo que va perfectamente.
Love these pointers! I have 2 now. One is attached to the Universal Mount For Polar Scope & Pointer and the other is attached to the Pointer For Polar Alignment bracket, which has a hot shoe mounting plate. Put your laser in this bracket, connect the bracket to your camera's hot shoe, switch on live view on the camera. Now centre a bright star in the live view and adjust the laster so it is roughly aligned to the star in the live view. This allows you to point at deep sky targets by star hopping with very good accuracy.
This thing works great
Got an extra laser pointer to mount in camera hot shoe for aiming…..outstanding results, makes framing things like Orion, Andromeda, and the Pleiades a breeze! Great addition to my night sky kit!
The product is well made and very compact meaning you can take the Move Shoot Move tracking system into remote locations easily. One small design improvement would be to set the on- off button within a recessed rim to reduce the chance of it accidentally being switched on eg in your camera bag - you don’t want to find the battery drained when you are ready to shoot.
The product works perfect- Thank you
