This Vixen 6x20 8° Illuminated Polar Axis Scope fits the GP2 and all other Great Polaris series telescope mounts, and helps you achieve fine alignment with the true celestial pole.  When your mount is properly centered with the celestial sphere's axis of rotation, images are free of alignment-accuracy-based resolution loss.  When observing, small objects at the highest magnifications will reliably be in the center of the eyepiece like they're supposed to be.

Included in this package is a polar axis cap, setting circles for the R.A. and declination axes, and an external, adjustable red illuminator that attaches to the polar axis scope.  The GP2 and most of the Great Polaris series mounts do have an internal polar illumination device, but the included external illuminator has adjustable intensity and can be used to observe star charts and eyepieces.

Works in north or south hemisphere below 70° latitude (aligns adjacent to Polaris in north and Octantis in south)
Built-in bubble level
External penlight-type red illuminator with adjustable intensity
Penlight illuminator doubles for reading star charts, eyepieces, etc.
