- degree angle viewer
Having lower back surgury two timesI find it difficult to do the polar line up, a 90 degree angle viewer would be nice or learn how to not be a Digital ***** and get that other device. yet last night I staid up late and photod Orions Neb. creeping over the Hurricaine Cliffs with a 20 second exposure and low ISO. Result? Pretty good for first use, need to improve the polar alignment. All in all I like, it and leveled an area of my back yard to set up my tripod as an "outdoor observatory!

I have only limited time on this equipment but like it so far. I have gotten 2 minute exposures with no star streaking at 300mm. I have tried up to 5 minute exposures but star streaking is apparent. I will try again really ensuring my polar alignment is spot on to see if I can get a 5 minute exposure with no guiding.
I have not yet been away from light pollution to try it.
Quality product is giving me quality photos. Wish I would have gotten one of these a long time ago.
Seriously. You can just sense the amount of clever insights and design tricks embedded in this tiny mount and the options it presents to the user, not to menrion the clarity of the manual. Its almost the iPhone of astrokits for wide-angle shooters. Of course, such a clever mini-mount requires energy and insight to master, particularly the Function buttons and balancing a 70 mm scope on the end if you get tired of DSLR photos. But it is all worth the challenge if you end up with a tracking mount you can carry around in your pocket(almost).
