    Celestron Polar Finder for Advanced Series CG-5 Mount

    Accurate polar alignment is an essential part of a successful night imaging and observing. The Celestron 94224 Polar Finder is just the tool to help you achieve that perfect alignment! Now, it's time to calibrate with the three included chrome thumbscrews to ensure the Celestron Polar Finder is accurately aligned with the rotation axis. Full instructions for this procedure are included and it can be perfomed anytime in about a half hour. Once done, you can permanently leave the Celestron Polar Finder in place and there will be no need to repeat. 


    When you're ready to observe, just roughly polar align the mount and head to the machined dials on the Celestron Polar Finder. Dial in the appropriate information and you're ready to take a look through the 18mm aperture polar finderscope where you'll see an etched reticule. Adjust the mounts altitude and azimuth controls until Polaris (North Hemisphere) or is located in the small circle. You're now aligned and accurate enough for long exposure guided astrophotography or your most demanding observing session!

    Aligning for the Southern Hemisphere is just as easy. Simply rotate your mount until the stars of the constellation Octans line up with the reticle pattern in the polar finder. Use the altitude and azimuth controls to make fine adjustments, and you're aligned!
