Accurate polar alignment has never been so simple, just put the "X" on the "Spot". Well the "X" does look more like a
"+" and the "Spot" isn't there but instead a representation of the celestial pole's location. Using the iPolar's graphical interface, the two overlaid symbols represent a precise polar alignment ensuring peak performance from your equatorial mount.
The iPolar™ utilizes an electronic camera aligned with both the axes of your telescopes mount. The software
processes the camera images calculating the true pole's location, then guides you through adjustments needed to align your mount to the celestial pole. Gone will be the days of crouching behind a "through the mount" polar scope, the iPolar™ facilitates making altitude and azimuth adjustments by just glancing at your laptops 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. iPolar™ electronic polarscopes are available for most iOptron and other brand equatorial mounts.
