iOptron's iPolar Electronic Polar Scope
The iOptron iPolar™ utilizes an digital camera that is aligned with both the axes of your mount. The downloadable Windows and MacOS 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 or Mac's display. 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.
