Quick Polar Finder for Skywatcher Star Adventurer/Skywatcher Star Adventurer2i

Quick Polar Finder for iOptron Skyguider Pro

Introduction

Polar aligning with laser pointer is intuitive, convenient and starter friendly, but it's only possible with Move Shoot move star tracker up to now. We want to share the pleasure of laser with other popular star trackers, namely, SkyWatcher Star Adventurer and iOptron SkyGuider pro.

Introducing Quick Polar Finder. Attach it to your equatorial mount, aim the laser beam for Polaris and you've got a fairly close alignment. For Astro-landscape photography, you are good to start shooting right away. For deep space object photography, simply take the Quick Polar Finder off and do an accurate alignment with the polar scope. In either case, you get to shoot the sky in much less time and probably save your back in the long run.

A thank you note

Glen Tillyard's 'loo roll' laser adapter for his SkyWatcher Star Adventurer inspired us to redesign our initial prototype. We appreciate his kind disclosure of this genius work!

Notice

  • Quick Polar Finder only works at locations where Polaris is visible.
  • Quick Polar Finder includes a 520-532nm laser pointer with an output less than 5mw. Please refer to local laws for regulation on laser products before purchasing.

Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer 2I Pro-MSM Laser Kit

This really helps me to polar align my mount quicker. This is especially helpful when you're doing you're doing you're rough polar alignment when it's dark. It asshres you that you're looking at Polaris in your PA scope and not some other star. My only concern is the battery it uses. They could've used a much more accessible type of battery.

Green laser - pointer

Item was delivered promptly and works fine. It is very helpful in aligning the tracker to north star.

My favourite astrophotography accessory!

This laser kit is great! Once adjusted, it really made aligning my Sky Adventurer and EQ5 mount so much easier. Tip: I wrapped some tape around the barrel of the polar scopes so it’s the same diameter as the adjustment ring at the end of the polar scopes - made securing the laser mount better.

I also use the camera hot shoe mount for it.

It’s bright! As it should be. I don’t care what the power output really is - I know not to point lasers in the wrong direction and I keep aware of possible aircraft in the area so no problem!

You only need to use the laser for a few seconds to align but it saves a lot (and I mean a lot), of time and greatly reduces frustration. I can easily imagine it’ll be a good tool for my upcoming winter photo sessions (-20!).

One of my favourite astrophotographic accessories - I’m serious!

Sky Watcher laser.

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.

Highly recommended.

Perfect

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.

MAM Quick Polar Finder for Skywatcher Star Adventurer 2i

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.

It works :-) ... except the battery (as usual) - very hard to find spares

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.

iOptron Sky Guider Pro Initial Polar Alignment Much Easier Now

The MSM tracker with its bracket-mounted laser introduced me to the convenience of laser-assisted initial polar alignment. I then used the MSM laser for initial polar alignment of my iOptron Sky Guider Pro as well, by holding the laser so it beamed through the Sky Guider’s polar scope. It was tricky to hold the laser in the exact position while adjusting mount azimuth and altitude with the other hand, but worth the effort. When MSM announced their Quick Polar Finder I ordered one immediately. It mates securely to the Sky Guider polar scope, leaving both hands free for azimuth and altitude adjustment, and the Quick Polar Finder is a permanent part of my Sky Guider kit. I’m no longer borrowing the laser from the MSM kit. Initial laser alignment ensures that Polaris is within the polar scope field of view, ready for fine polar alignment.
