Pointer for Polar Alignment
I used my new laser pointer for polar alignment and it was very quick and easy! Took about 2 minutes to get the alignment and saw no star tracks using the MSM. I had to calibrate the laser first, but that was quite easy
The pointer is well-made and durable. However, the metal piece that slides into the hot shoe is too small and allows the pointer to move 15° to either side. If this piece was the width of the hot shoe so that it would not be able to move side to side, it would be perfect.
I had the previous version of both the mount and the laser and I must admit they both have been improved! Laser is finally rechargeable and the mount is more useful, because can mount two pointers at the same time and can also be placed on the hot shoe of a camera.
Awesome product and amazing service by MSM team, during the original delivery schedule the laser pointer was missing , the team was helpful enough is getting the same delivered to my address in India
What a great pointer!
I did have another pointer I bought from eBay which was very disappointing and too dim for use (not even my cats were impressed!). The MSM laser pointer impressed me due to its extremely bright and wire thin light beam that was able to penetrate the night sky with ease. The beam could be followed to a chimney stack 500 yards away and there was hardly any divergence in the beam width. I would be very careful using this when there is aircraft in the sky - it is that powerful! Along with its mounting accessory you could mount this on a DSLR hot shoe or place it in the star adventurer polar scope recess to better guide your mount alignment. For visualising night sky targets and directing your imaging equipment onto them quickly then the MSM pointer is a very useful tool to have. The green coloured laser cuts through the murkiness of night with ease and I am very happy with it.
Works as advertised. Smartly designed. Very good manufacturing. One suggestion - add a bubble level to the top plate.
Received as Expected and on time
I had a problem with the laser pointer on the MSM set I bought last year because it didn't work properly.
So I contacted MSM and they sold me a new laser pointer at a very favorable price.
The only problem is that it is not compatible with the existing holder, i.e. it does not match the size of the existing holder, so I ended up mixing them.
MSM understands the consumer and provides a very beneficial solution.
