I took this out in my front yard for the first time and I had alignment within just a few seconds that was good enough for 2 minute exposures. I haven't tried anything beyond two minutes because I'm still using the factory base for the Sky Guider Pro and once I've upgraded to the Williams Optics base for my tracker then I'll try longer exposure times. It's a great product. I'm 6'5" so getting down on the ground to look thru the reticle was a real pain. I'm very impressed with this little setup. It took it a minute to get it from overseas. It would have been nice if they stocked those items in the U.S.
This Laser kit is ideal for the Sky Watcher Adventure 2i which fits perfect and allows alignment with Polaris. After lining it up you can use the embedded scope to fine-tune your alignment. I am glad I purchased it!
Even with a fully charged battery it does not shine brightly enough if it gets cold. So far I've only used it in 40 to 50 degree weather and unless I've kept it warm by keeping it in my front pocket hey could not be useful. If I had to use it again even a few minutes later it would not be bright enough to be useful.
It does make the initial polar alignment much easier And where I have a small battery pack and a lens warmer that I can use to keep it warm I'm happy with what I have.

Well build but I've not try it yet. Will give a product review once i've used it!
The laser kit is very easy to use, makes the polar alignment a breeze, literary it only takes a minute to precise polar align the mount. I would highly recommend the product.
Watch the video on the website, you really can find polaris and set up the tracker in a very quick time. No more hunting around :)
Not used yet but looks like a good piece of kit.
The laser kit works great, helps a lot. Only problem was the large amount of time it took to get here.
Definitely recommend this little gadget. Watch the video on the website, you really can find polaris and set up the tracker in a very quick time. No more hunting around for an hour (and I have done that!!), it works like a charm
