QHY PoleMaster EQ Mount Polar Alignment Camera
More than just a polar alignment scope, QHY incorporates guide scope technology into a polar alignment camera creating a high-precision electronic polar alignement scope. Polar aligning is easily one of the most furstrating aspects of owning an EQ mount. Without total precision your long imaging sessions may lead to even more frustration and, worse, not being able to capture the type of images you're hoping to acheive. And what happens when you bump into your tripod in the dark? You have to realign potentially spending even more time repeating the process.
QHYCCD's PoleMaster reduces your polar alignment process by employing a highly sensitive camera. Mounted to the front of your RA axis, the PoleMaster will capture an image of the northern sky and then will calculate based on that image, where true north is. Displaying this information and RA rotation on a screen, you can then quickly and easily adjust the mount to the correct position. As the PoleMaster camera is much more sensitive than the human eye, this allows for polar alignment before the night is truely dark buying you just that much more time to image.
