iOptron iPolar Electronic Polarscope - No Adapter

This version of the iOptron iPolar e-Polarscope does not come with an adapter but will fit the iOptron SkyTracker Pro just fine without one. The body of the iPolar has a side USB, which means it will work for external installation on a variety of mounts with the proper adapter (sold separately). However, unless you are mounting this iPolar to the SkyTracker Pro, we recommend you choose the proper iPolar package for your mount, which comes with the e-Polarscope plus the adapter, since buying the package instead of the iPolar and adapter separately saves you a few bucks. If you have more than one mount, you can buy a second adapter separately.

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 equatorial mount.

The iOptron iPolar™ utilizes an electronic camera that is aligned with both the axes of your telescopes mount. The included 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.
