Product Description

Introducing the PoleMaster™ high precision and simple to utilize electronic polarscope. The PoleMaster is a very light sensitive camera that mounts on the front of the R.A. axis of a equatorial mount. The camera's light sensitivity is much higher than the unaided eye therefore it can see Polaris and other dim stars close-by. The PoleMaster™, based on the information provided by the location of the "faint" stars, precisely ascertains the exact area of the divine shaft. Rotation centers of the R.A. axis is also detectable with the iOptron PoleMaster.

Utilizing this data, the included software shows the R.A rotation center and the virtual polar point on your PCs monitor. The observer only needs to modify the mount accordingly until the two points overlap to achieve a highly precise polar alignment upwards of 30 arc seconds. Adapter are available for iOptron equatorial mounts and adapters for other brand mounts are available through a third party.
