The Celestron Polar Finder for Advanced Series CG-5 Mount and CGEM Mounts provides you with precise alignment for long-exposure imaging! The full instructions for proper alignment are included and you can perform them anytime in about a half-hour.
To start observing, roughly polar align the mount and head to the machined dials on the Celestron Polar Finder. After dialing in the information, look through the 18 mm polar finderscope where you can see an etched reticle. From there, adjust the mounts altitude and azimuth controls until Polaris (North Hemisphere) is located in the small circle and you're ready to go!
Aligning for the Southern Hemisphere is just as easy! Rotate your mount until the stars of the constellation Octans line up with the reticle pattern in the polar finder. Finally, use the altitude and azimuth controls to make fine adjustments.
