• Celestron 94224 Polar Telescope Finderscope, Black

    Get some help polar aligning your Celestron CGEM, Advanced VX, or CG-5 mount with the addition of the Polar Finderscope. Install the finder into the polar finder port, located at the rear of the mount, and focus the eyepiece until the reticle is sharp. The reticle is etched with a few recognizable star patterns to help you align your telescope. If you are using your telescope in the Northern Hemisphere, you will recognize the Big Dipper asterism on the reticle, as well as the familiar “W” of Cassiopeia. Use the Big Dipper to guide you in the spring and summer months, and Cassiopeia during the fall and winter. The North Star, Polaris, is also designated on the reticle, as is the NCP, or North Celestial Pole. Once you choose which star pattern to use, align your telescope so that the stars line up with the positions shown on the reticle, then move the telescope’s azimuth and altitude adjustment controls to place Polaris right in the crosshairs. The Celestron Polar Axis Finder can also be used in the Southern Hemisphere. Four stars of the constellation Octans are etched in the reticle. Adjust your telescope until those stars line up as shown on the reticle.

  • Astromania Polar Alignment Scope for EQ-5, Black - for Both Northern and Southern Hemispheres Eyepiece Focus Adjustment to Achieve Sharp Focus on Reticle

    The polar finder is simply screwed into the back of the mount. Correct alignment of the mount can be achieved within a very short time with this improved polar finder. Good alignment of the mount with the North Celestial Pole can be achieved in a short time by using the polar finder. As the celestial North Pole (to which the telescope mount must be aligned) does not exactly coincide with the position of the Pole Star, using this polar finder is very important. There are two models here which have the same functions you may receive one of them. The new model is easier to use than the old one with Big Dipper and a target-spot.As we know, Polaris position changes as time passes, the improved product solve this problem when doing polar alignment in Northern hemisphere, it allows you put Polaris on the the correct circle corresponding to the present year for better alignment precision. Here are a few APPs that can give Polaris orientation in the FOV of a polar scope depending on the observer's position and local time. Generally, the orientations are given in time format. The new reticle has a clock like engraving which is compatible with these applications. For polar alignment, rotate the R.A. axis of the mount to put the 0 o'clock of the reticle at the highest position in the FOV of...

  • Omegon EQ-500 Polar Finder Scope

    Omegon polar finder scope for EQ-500 mount - Precision alignment for astrophotographyThis polar finder scope lets you precisely align your EQ-500 mount on the north celestial pole in a very short time. Where does that get you? - you will now be able to expose beautiful, precisely tracked images. This only becomes possible after precision alignment of the mount. Makes aligning your mount simpleOnce the polar finder scope has been attached to your mount, you will be able to find the exact position of the North Celestial Pole within just a few minutes. Simply move your telescope until the Pole Star can be seen in the polar finder scope. Then rotate the right ascension (RA) axis until you have found the current position of the Pole Star near the celestial pole. Or align on the celestial pole using the instructions via the scale on the mount. Illumination for use at nightYour telescope is often only a dark shadow at night, with the night sky above you. For this reason, the polar finder scope is provided with a background light so that you can see what you are doing when aligning with it. The illuminated figures and points glow in a red background light, with the brightness steplessly adjustable. The advantages in a nutshell:- exact tracking for astrophotography via accurate polar ...

  • Orion Sirius ED80 EQ-G Computerized GoTo Refractor Telescope

    As numerous Orion customers have shown, the popular Orion ED80 refractor's short focal length and superb apochromatic optics make it a great telescope for astrophotography. And now we've coupled it with a state-of-the-art equatorial mount that provides the stability and precision control needed to capture beautiful deep-sky images. The Orion Sirius ED80 EQ-G GoTo Refractor Telescope sports a multi-coated 80mm objective lens doublet of 600mm focal length (f/7.5). One lens element is crafted from extra-low dispersion, or "ED" optical glass. This high-grade glass greatly reduces the chromatic aberration that causes color fringing around bright objects and loss of sharpness in standard achromats. The ED80 refractor telescope's 2" Crayford focuser accepts both 2" and 1.25" accessories and has a drawtube tensioning knob for securing your camera position when imaging and your telescope eyepiece/diagonal assembly when observing. With the Sirius EQ-G mount and GoTo hand controller you'll experience effortless computerized navigation to over 42,000 celestial objects with a few button pushes on the illuminated hand controller. Internal dual-axis stepper motors move the telescope at up to 3.4-deg per second right to your target object, tracking it while you observe or photograph it. Periodic...
