Pros and Cons

✅ Pros

It has reduced weight of only 460 grams.
Review Pros
It also does motion timelapses.
It offers easy laser-guided polar alignment.
It occupies the same as the body of a camera, so we can carry it inside the backpack without problem.
With the laser alone (Rough polar alignment), I have managed to get exposure of about 1 minute without visible trails.
It performs its advertised functions well enough to allow users to get results, either tracked images of the Milky Way and constellations, or simple motion-control time-lapses.
It’s much easier to set up than any tracker I’ve ever used.
It doesn’t take us long to assemble the startracker and calibrate it when moving from one location to another.
The Move-Shoot-Move is the most compact and easy to set up star tracker I have ever used.
It’s simple 2-button design controls Northern and Southern Hemisphere rotations, full and 1/2 tracking speeds, and four choices of time-lapse movement speeds.
The battery life so far is very impressive.
The device is also designed to rotate whilst shooting time-lapse sequences, this is very handy as it means you don’t need a separate device for time-lapse.
Once accurately aligned, you can get some fantastic results.
It will also serve to make timelapses on the move.
The MSM comes with a little green laser, which will help you quickly do a polar alignment.
It is accurate for 60 seconds+ long exposures.
The MSM can be configured a few different ways.
The MSM tracker is low-cost, well-built, and compact for easy packing and travel.
We will obtain images of the sky with less noise and greater detail and sharpness.
I was able to get a precise polar alignment in less than 10 seconds.
It is lightweight but sturdy build.
The device is extremely lightweight and compact, meaning I can always have it with me when travelling.
It performs its advertised functions well enough to allow users to get results.
It can also be used for simple motion-control time-lapses.
The green laser Star Pointer makes alignment a quick and uncomplicated process.

❌ Cons

We can use it to take pictures of astronomical landscapes, but not deep sky.
Having Moon and sun tracking speed would make the SIFO a great tool for tracking eclipses and the like.
I found the brightness of the green laser beam diminished significantly on cold nights.
It is tricky to set-up in daylight.
According to the website, the MSM battery is only rated for 5 hours. That’s fairly short for a star tracker.
My only con is its 6.6 pounds limitation on load capacity.
It has some fiddly screws.
We will not have as much precision or stability as with a larger startracker.
Wide-angle lenses work best.
The threaded studs do not stop at any point and you need to tighten the ball head pretty well to ensure it does not get lose during operation.
The mounting bracket for the Laser pointer and polar scope is not built into the tracker and is therefore easy to lose / misplace.

Review Summaries
The MSM tracker is low-cost, well-built, and compact for easy packing and travel. It performs its advertised functions well enough to allow users to get results, either tracked images of the Milky Way and constellations, or simple motion-control time-lapses.
Lightweight and portable, easy to use and with accurate star-tracking, this little rotator is ideal for those wanting more from their wide-angle Milky Way and star-field photography, though battery life is relatively short.
The MSM is by far the smallest, lightest, and most portable star tracker on the market. The Star Adventure Mini is a close second, and that tracker does have more features with its companion app.
The biggest difference I’ve found is the colours which are brought out with longer exposures. A stack of 10 or more photos at 3200 or 6400 [ISO] at 10-15 secs [each] looks great; but, when compared to a single shot at 640 [ISO] for 150 secs, there is no comparison. The star colours are amazing and the nebula are much more noticeable.
The Move-shoot-move Sifo Rotator is a great little device which can open up a new world of opportunity to shoot better astro photos when using it as a star tracker and more dynamic time-lapse footage when using it to rotate your camera throughout a sequence. It can’t carry the payload that some other star trackers can carry, but it is also significantly cheaper, lighter and more portable than other trackers on the market, which in my book makes it the right tool for my needs.
Monoprice has been well-loved among tech geeks for a while for providing all kinds of cheap gear that’s still good quality. Some of it, like their budget 5.1 home theater speaker system was so good Monoprice was sued by the company they were copying. So, if you’ve only purchased Monoprice’s HDMI cables, you’ll find a lot more to love (and more money to save).
I wasn’t expecting a lot for a mere $20 over Monoprice’s already-good entry-level earbuds. What I got instead was my new favorite pair of earbuds. They sound richer and have better battery life than earbuds that cost more than twice as much. People looking for entry-level true wireless earbuds might be more comfortable with the $50 option, and those will still work fine. If $70 doesn’t scare you away, though, you’ll be getting some of the best sound, connectivity, and battery performance available.
The Monolith THX-365T and THX-365C are both rather heavy-duty three-way bookshelf speakers and center channel speakers. Both of them are THX Ultra certified, and that means they should be able to achieve THX Reference level loudness at a distance of 12 feet within a 3,000 cubic foot room, so they do need to be very capable speakers.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time with the Monoprice Monolith M570 headphones. Their spacious and smooth sonic character melded with an above average (for inexpensive open-back cans) level of bass reproduction and some judicious tuning in the upper vocal and lower treble range make these a great go-to set of headphones for a wide variety of music.
Home and educational users will find a lot to like with the Monoprice Voxel, a neat 3D printer that produces high-quality prints at a low cost and that’s one of the best budget 3D printers you can buy.
A great value HDMI cable, which is more than suitable for most people. It’ll handle 1080p, 4K, and 3D signals, and you’ll get it for less than $10.
Some of these products have gotten attention on their own, and, yes, there are a couple of cables on this list, but it’s mostly products you might not know Monoprice even makes. If you’re ready to start thinking of Monoprice as more than just a budget cable retailer, these products might make their way onto your shelves.
The M300 is, however, a flawed product at best, an unpolished gem that has very limited appeal due to its horrible build quality and fit. The sound quality is brilliant in patches, and although they have a long way to go before releasing a classic product, you can’t help but think, they’re onto something.
The Monoprice Monolith M300 are a wonderful sounding pair of in-ear headphones that come with too many compromises. From its heavy, unwieldy cable to its extreme discomfort, the Monolith M300 just aren’t worth the tradeoffs for great sound.
We can without a doubt acknowledge that we’re talking about an excellent 3D printer that comes at a very low price. The Monoprice Maker Select V2 can print in many different materials, is based on open source software and has the volume and speed to print big and detailed items. It really is a step up from the company’s lower end printer, the Select Mini.
