I have it. Good for UA. Not so good for 2min with Sigma 135. Too many images that are not so good. Bad tracking


That is exactly what I got from the amazingsky / Alan Dyer review (https://amazingsky.net/tag/move-shoot-move/). Affordable, light and with a good pay load of 3kg, but not too precise. So very good suitable for ultra-wide angle (UWA) work, probably up to 50mm or so, but not for telephoto lenses or deep sky. For my standard 30 sec exposures with a 35/1.4 lens on a 'non-nodal' pano-head (total weight around 2kg) it's nearly perfect. I like the low weight (hiker!), I love the easy-to-use laser pointer (N-hemisphere) and I dislike the small build-in battery as 5 hrs runtime can be short for long & cold winter nights.

In principle you only need a MSM for (U)WA work and  a Fornax Light Track for the rest
