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.

    QHY PoleMaster EQ Mount Polar Alignment Camera-box

    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.
    • Dimensions: 40 mm Diameter, 50.7 mm tall.

Great polar alignment

Using is exceptionally easy. The alignment is fast. I even run it again if I bump tripod in the dark. Make sure to get the proper mount adapter and it’s smooth sailing. There is a extra feature if you follow the instructions and install with the usb pointing left when you are facing mount.
