iOptron Polar Scope for IEQ30/45
In order for the iOptron iEQ30, iEQ45, iEQ30Pro, or iEQ45Pro mounts to tracking properly, they have to be accurately polar aligned. This is achieved by making the polar axis of the mount parallel to that of the Earth’s axis of rotation. The iOptron AccuAligning Polar Scope makes it easy to polar align your mount so you can get on to the fun of observing or imaging!
Before installing the iOptron polar scope onto the mount, face the polar scope to a bright source, such as the sky (but not the SUN) or a lamp that is in the distance. Adjust the eyepiece to focus the reticle pattern to your eyes by turning it. Once the reticle looks sharp, look through the eyepiece. If you can not see the distant object clearly, the polar scope is not focused for your eyesight. Turn the locking ring a few times to loosen it, then urn the objective lens until the image is focused. Retighten the lock ring.
This polar alignment scope is illuminated, and is intended for use with the IEQ30 and IEQ45 mounts, as well as their 'pro' variants.
