Excellent mount for mounting either device or both together. Ensures each device sits perfectly straight to the MSM.

In my opinion, The Universal Mount For Polar Scope and Pointer is priceless. It makes it so easy to use the quick action laser pointer to get general alignment, then easily finely tuning your alignment with the polar scope. Both, the laser and scope are effective in their own right, but this mount allows you to truly get the best results with the smallest effort. This mount also allows for a more secure mount for the scope as the scope is inserted deeper through the mount and the mount is grooved with a beefier screw. I believe this piece of the kit isn't essential for everyone, but it is for me!
I can't even buy one of these. I want one...but because Move Shoot Move is located in Hong Kong, Netspend forbids me from buying it...and it's not for sale on their Amazon page.
Received the mount and much easier to work with because I also got the 90 degree viewfinder. Have been out a couple of time to test them but unfortunately things including my body, do not work to well in -30 C weather. Looking forward to warmer weather to check out all my new MSM equipment.
Finally had some clear skies so I tried using the mount. It attaches easily to the MSM and allows me to quickly find Polaris with the laser and then use the scope to line it up more precisely.
I have a laser mount for my MSM already. I bought the laser mount to mount to my camera's hot shoe. This allows the camera to be accurately sighted on my tareget star. Rather than remove the larger diameter MSM laser, I use a smaller diameter pencil green laser on the camera shoe. My only wish is that the mount's locking bolt was longer to accomodate the thinner laser. I also bought the iphone MSM mount. It is strong as an ox and built to last.
The new mount is a huge improvement over its predecessor. Both polar scope and laser pointer mount consistently. With both mounted it is possible to adjust the laser so its pointing coincides with the center of the polar scope. The mount also includes a peep hole. Polar alignment can proceed in three stages: 1) roughly align Polaris in the peep hole, 2) improve centering on Polaris with the laser, 3) complete fine polar alignment with the polar scope. Alignment complete, remove and stow the bracket with polar scope and laser pointer still installed, ready for the next polar alignment.
