In my opinion it is an essential product for those of us in the southern hemisphere with medium light pollution; since the alignment by Octans is almost impossible due to its low magnitude of light.
The Polemaster is great but when I bought it I asked which adapter for my mount. I'm using the lx85 and was told to get the universal adapter. It doesn't work for the lx85. Good thing I'm a machinist and made one that works.
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.
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.
A straight forward tool to make you astrophotography easier.
Accurate and time-saving!
