Losmandy Mount Polar Scope for GM-8, G-9, and G-11 PS

Item No. 770-60000
Manuf. No. Losmandy PS

Eligible for Scope City Rewards at Check-out

This polar findersocpe works with the Losmandy GM-8, G-9 and G-11 mounts only. It threads into the polar axis and works in both Northern or Southern hemispheres. It includes a red LED illuminator powered by a detachable battery pack that uses two AA flashlight batteries. A knurled plug seals the illuminator hole against the entry of dust when the illuminator is not in use.

In the finder is an etched reticle with two star patterns covering the north and south celestial poles. No calculations are needed to use the polar scope. Simply rotate the polar scope until the appropriate stars approximately line up with the etched pattern for your hemisphere, adjust the mount's altitude and azimuth knobs to move the mount until the stars fall precisely in the positions indicated in the reticle, and that's it. The polar axis of the scope is now lined up with the appropriate celestial pole. While the alignment will not eliminate the need to guide your scope during long exposure astrophotography, it will considerably reduce the number and magnitude of corrections needed due to polar alignment errors.
