An accurate polar alignment is crucial for observing or imaging with a German equatorial mount like the CG-4/Omni mount. But getting your telescope polar aligned quickly can be difficult. That's why Celestron created this polar finderscope.
This finder goes beyond a simple dot or reticle and actually includes familiar star patterns to help you set up your telescope properly. If you're in the Northern Hemisphere, you'll align the stars with the image of the Big Dipper during the spring and summer months or "W"-shaped Cassiopeia in the winter months. This finder can also be used in the Southern Hemisphere; simply align the four stars of Octans in the finder. In addition to these easily recognizable asterisms, the finder also indicates Polaris and the celestial pole.
The Polar Finder for CG-4/Omni is a great accessory if you're new to polar alignment or if you enjoy taking your telescope new observing sites. Start taking advantage of a quicker, more intuitive polar alignment process today!
For use with Celestron CG-4 (Omni) mounts. For CGEM, CG-5 and Advanced VX computerized mounts, use this polar finderscope.
Available for shipment to the USA and Canada only.
