iOptron iPolar Electronic Polarscope for CEM120 Internal Mounting

This version of the iOptron iPolar e-Polarscope, which has a 4-pin wire, mounts the iPolar internally to your iOptron CEM120 equatorial mount with the included CEM120 adapter. Check the Files tab above for links to download iPolar software, see a compatibility chart or download the instruction manual.

With the iPolar e-Polarscope from iOptron, accurate polar alignment has never been so simple! All you have to do is place the plus symbol over the graphical representation of the celestial pole's location. When these two symbols are aligned they represent a precise polar alignment, allowing you to get the best performance possible from your CEM120 equatorial mount.

The iOptron iPolar™ utilizes an electronic camera that is aligned with both the axes of your mount. The downloadable Windows software processes the camera's images to calculate the true location of the celestial pole (north or south) and then guides you through any adjustments needed to align your mount precisely to the pole. Gone are the days of crouching behind a "through the mount" polar scope! Instead, the iPolar™ facilitates making altitude and azimuth adjustments by just glancing at your PC's monitor. This system needs as few as four stars to locate the pole, and can do so even when the pole location itself is blocked by clouds, tree branches or other obstructions.
