Great service!

Just what ì needed as attaching to my dovetail plate was a no go. I used some Krazy Glue to attach to my polar opening and it worked perfectly.

Attached to CGX Mount

As someone who constantly monitors polar alignment throughout the capture process, this was a must. With a little modification I’ve mounted the QHY Universal PoleMaster Adapter to my Celestron CGX handle. I filed down a plane on the CGX handle that is perpendicular to the polar axis of the mount. I then threaded a hole in the center of the plane. Celestron, or any accessory maker, could sell a replacement handle that’s made this way. https://twitter.com/wadeprunty/status/1236740374829424641?s=21

Great Adapter

Use this polemaster generic adapter to get great polar alignment on those old 70s & 80s classic Criterion, Meade, Starliner, Parks, Cave mounts that don’t have a pole scope bore or fine adjustments. Purchase the correct diameter pipe/conduit hanger that matches the OD of the mount for $1 at the hardware store. Then attach this 1/4-20 generic adapter to the hanger as close to the RA center axis as possible.

Great for Alt/Az mounts with a wedge.

I needed this adapter to attach to the lid of an 8” SCT on an Alt Az mount with a wedge. It worked perfectly because it jas a nice smooth back surface making it very easy to attach it to a flat surface with a double sided sticky tape. I was able to achieve very accurate polar alignment and nearly perfect tracking on PHD2.

Polemaster Adapter Works Like A Charm!

As you can imagine, Polemaster makes a variety of adapters to attach its video camera to particular brand mounts. However, there are many mounts that they do not make a specific adapter for. That’s where the Universal Polemaster Adapter comes in handy. With a little imagination and handiwork, you can use this adapter to attach the Polemaster camera to your mount and bring the accuracy and ease-of-use of the Polemaster system to your astronomical endeavors! In several applications, I have made a simple round aluminum spacer with a 3/8” threaded hole on one side, and a 1/4”x20 threaded hole on the other. The Polemaster adapter uses the 1/4”x20 hole, and the 3/8” threaded hole screws onto the bolt used for a tripod head or mount base. Perfect!
