Questions & Answers

Product Questions

Would this work as a replacement for the polar scope in a mid-80s vintage Super Polaris mount?
It's a long shot, but would this Polar Scope Kit work on a Meade LXD75 Go To Mount? I bought the mount used and it's missing the Illuminator for the polar scope. If this would fit, I could replace the entire factory scope...
What is the view through the reticule ? What kind of diagram is shown to line up polaris? Can you source a photo of this??
Will this fit the GP-DX? My understanding is all the Vixen GP mounts take the same polar scope.
I bought a Celestron SP-C8N but the polar scope illuminator is missing. Can it be sourced separately from the polar scope which is exactly the same as this one?
Thanks in advance,
