Finding Polaris made easy

I've just tried out my new polar scope from B&H recently. I found it to be very easy to set up, and operate. I am a newby to astronomy, and to make things interesting, I'm not extremely computer literate. I went to the I optron website, and found their directions very user friendly. thanks for making such a helpful tool.

I love ipolar

This works great for doing polar alignment. I use it on my Celestron AVX mount. I can polar align in just a couple minutes using plate solving. The controls to move the mount are easy to use. The software works great. One of the best things is you can monitor polar alignment as you move around the sky and readjust polar alignment whenever you want. Easy to set it up, once you find the set screws.

A mandatory piece of gear for astro imaging

This device is the most essential kit with the mount to achieve precise astro imaging. If your polar alignment is not accurate, you'll find yourself with blurry and poor images. This polar scope allows you to accurately align your mount with the polar axis of the earth. Provided that you have followed all the setup routines of setting up a mount for astronomy imaging, such as checking that your mount is properly levelled to the ground, you will benefit from a dramatically improved exposure length when taking photos of deep sky imaging. The setup and procedure of the Ioptron Ipolar is very simple and straight forward compared to other procedures that are as precise but which take more time and are a little bit more complicated. This item is highly recommended for astro imaging and I would not enough recommend astro photographers to invest in this device if they want successful astro photos.
