Product Details

  •  

    The QHY PoleMaster eliminates the frustrating aspects that can happen during polar alignment. Save time with this highly sensitive camera! You can start polar aligning before the night sky becomes truly dark with its high sensitivity.

    Simply mount your camera to the front of your RA axis, it will then capture an image of the northern sky and then calculate where true north is based on that image. The information is displayed on a screen, helping you make any slight adjustments if needed.

    The QHY PoleMaster is the perfect accessory for your system

    Check out its features:

    Accuracy:Your best polar alignment can now be achieved in the order of a maximum 30-arcsecond range.

    Wide-angle view: Its wide field-of-view (11 x 8 degrees) makes it very easy to locate the pole star. 

    Easy to install:Easily install it onto any equatorial mount through mount-specific adapters, even on mounts without a polar scope.

    Real-time monitoring and adjusting: You can monitor your polar alignment in real-time. If polar alignment is lost, it is now a simple matter to bring it back without having to start from scratch.

    Three-star alignment no longer needed: Once you are polar aligned, you will only need to perform a one-star alignment - a real time saver.

    Pair it with a single axis mount: When used with a single (RA-only) axis mount, good polar alignment will minimize drift in the DEC axis, therefore maximizing the performance of your mount.

    Additional Information:

    • Install Method: Three M3 screws attach to a mount adapter (mount adapter is sold separately).
    • Interface: Mini USB 2.0.
    • High Precision: Max 30 arcseconds.

Polemaster on a LX200 SCT

Spectacular product. Camera works great, software is simple to use. Alignment takes a few minutes. For those wondering about Mac vs. Windows, I have tried it on both and the software works equally as well on either. I mounted it using the ADM dovetail and adaptor to fit my scope.

Time and Back Saver

I’m too old and my eyes are too bad to waste time getting a poor polar alignment by trying to use a polar scope. The PoleMaster allows me to get a very good polar alignment quickly and easily while sitting in a chair punching buttons on my computer.

QHY PoleMaster

It’s fairly simple to use. Suggest that you watch a couple YouTube which can provide some useful hints for easier use.

Awesome!

Don't know how I got along without it all this time! Setup was easy, using OPT's setup video. This is a must for anyone requiring accurate polar alignment in addition to any Plate Solving used.
