About MYT Works Polished Speed Rail
Custom cut, centerless ground, polished and anodized speedrail for the ultimate in smooth gliding motion. Although our line of camera support dollies will work well with 1-1/4" standard speedrail (1.66" O.D.), we offer a customized version that vastly improves upon generic varieties. Our 1¼" (1.660" OD) schedule 40 aluminum speed rail pairs come in 3', 4', or 5' sections.

Constellation Universal Kit (Skater Kit & Accessories)
The Constellation Universal Kit delivers all of the features of the Constellation Standard Kit with the addition of our most popular accessories. Expect smooth camera movement and the capability to set up numerous, creative configurations in minutes.
The Universal Kit includes our most popular accessories at a discount. The skater dolly is compact, modular and multi-purpose. Skater plates can be used as rigging plates and mounted on legs/rods or speed rail to create a stationary support. Skater dollies also include unique safety features. Spring-loaded wheel modules grip the rails for controlled motion while keeping your camera setup securely on the track; and our wheel lock prevents runaway motion. No cumbersome or special tools are required for setup or breakdown. Suitable for any camera. All MYT Works skater dollies are designed, manufactured and assembled in New York City from machined, industrial-grade steel and aluminum.
Our line of accessories helps tailor your MYT Works system to your exact application. With a wide range of cross-compatible, multi-purpose tools, each option makes shooting on a MYT Works System more stable, versatile and productive.
The Constellation is the largest offering in the MYT Works Galaxy Line. With a 14” footprint, ultra-high load capacity, Hi-Hat compatibility, and the ability to mount the plate on 19 mm rods or speedrail with adapters.
SPRING-LOADED WHEEL MODULE
Traditional skateboard dollies use wheels that merely rest upon the rails. Our MYT Skater Dollies’ unique spring-loaded wheel modules grip the rails. This provides the smoothest motion possible adjusting for any inconsistencies in the rails all the while keeping your camera setup secure.
Further, we include a brake SRP Locking Bolt with every set of modules to prevent run-away situations and keep your gear safe.
MOUNTING OPTIONS GALORE
More 1/4"-20, 3/8"-16, and 1/2"-13 threads than you can actually count. With holes for sash-cord and through-hole 3/8" slots for compatibility with other equipment, the Constellation doubles as one of the most sophisticated rigging plates out there.
Choose between 75 and 100 mm Doughnuts, Flat Mount, and Mitchell Mount options for use with any camera head.
HI-HAT LATCH RELEASE
Already own a Glide? Like the 3-in-1? Now try 4-in-1. The Constellation comes equipped with a quick release latch for Medium/Large Hi-Hat compatibility. But the similarities don't end there— many of our accessories for the Glide Line also work for the Galaxy Line!
The modularity of the Hi-Hat gives the operator tremendous freedom. The top mount may be quickly changed between 75mm, 100 mm, 150mm, Mitchell, or Flat Mount configurations to accommodate nearly any type of camera head. The stackable step rod legs may be exchanged to bring the camera package either higher or lower.
Industry Standard Speed Rail
Each of our Galaxy Line Skater Dollies runs on standard 1-1/4" aluminum pipe (1.660" outside diameter). Need to travel light? Purchase rail from a local hardware store or rental house at your destination.
Increase the length of travel by linking rail sections via our Speed Rail Connectors. Then simply place Middle Truss Supports as needed.
ALUMINUM END TRUSS
Mount Baby Feet directly to the underside of the Trusses at a 15-degree angle or mount a 5/8” light stand, c-stand, or baby pin to the receiver directly. Utilize a Truss-to-Tripod Adapter and place the system on a tripod of your choice.
We take great pride in the workmanship and quality of each one of our systems. All of our products are built to last and the Glide is no exception. Made of anodized aluminum and stainless steel, all of the components are incredibly robust and built to handle the rigors of production work. We're also proud to be Made in America. All of our custom components are designed, machined, and assembled in the New York City and Tri-State area.

SEAMLESS MOTION WITH ROCKING-FREE STARTS AND STOPS, FAST SETUP TIME, LIGHTWEIGHT, HEAVY LOAD CAPACITY, FLEXIBLE MOUNTING OPTIONS, PATENTED DESIGN AND ENGINEERING
Our camera sliders are the only sliders designed to handle all camera options — from DSLRs to professional cameras of any format. Unlike other sliders, ours does not require center support. Numerous mounting options are also available to accommodate any and all environments. Our wheel bearing modules are designed to forgo the need for lubrication and are machined from the strongest self-lubricating polymer available today.
Their low profile, lightweight, high-load capacity makes our sliders the quickest and easiest to set up on location. They are made of the highest-grade aluminum, brass, and stainless steel milling materials — all corrosion and rust-free.
The quality of motion with our patented hybrid sleeve bearing wheel combination is unsurpassed. It allows for rock-free seamless starts and stops as well as continuous motion at all camera movement speeds. The latch on the carriage is designed for quick release of the Hi-hat with the camera still mounted on the tripod head. This feature allows operators to either continue shooting in Hi-hat mode, in MYT Rover Dolly mode, or in setting the camera down while repositioning the slider for another setup. Structurally, our slider can handle extreme temperatures and the most severe adverse shooting conditions.
The 3-in-1 capability extends to our Skater dolly, enabling a seamless transition from one to another. Both camera slider and skater dolly carriage platforms have a 5.25-inch square spacing insert profile, allowing our Hi-hat to be lifted from our camera slider and instantly mounted on our skater dolly. All our accessories also work for camera sliders and skater dollies.
All our components are designed, engineered, machined and built in-house. Our camera sliders are designed by Filmmakers and Engineers for Filmmakers. It is often the first comment we hear when people first try our sliders. Making sure they can count on a reliable camera linear motion system for years to come is of paramount importance to us. Filmmakers can see and sense our equipment was designed for them by one of them. Hence our motto, Born out of Frustration, our registered Trademark.
