    Questions & Answers

    Ask a Question
    • I bought a Celestron SP-C8N but the polar scope illuminator is missing. Can it be sourced separately from the polar scope which is exactly the same as this one? Thanks in advance, Manny

      The Manufacturer does not recommend that this polar scope be used with the celestron mount you mentioned.

    • It's a long shot, but would this Polar Scope Kit work on a Meade LXD75 Go To Mount? I bought the mount used and it's missing the Illuminator for the polar scope. If this would fit, I could replace the entire factory scope...

      Unfortunately, it will not fit. If the illuminator is the same size as a Reticle eyepiece, you might be able to borrow one from an eyepiece you may have. If you can take measurements of the threaded hole with the illuminator removed on your scope, we ma

    • Will this fit the GP-DX? My understanding is all the Vixen GP mounts take the same polar scope.

      According to Vixen, this will work on the GP2 and GP-DX mounts, but it may not work on some of the older mounts.

    • Will this fit the GP-DX? My understanding is all the Vixen GP mounts take the same polar scope.

      According to Vixen, this will work on the GP2 and GP-DX mounts, but it may not work on some of the older mounts.

    • Would this work as a replacement for the polar scope in a mid-80s vintage Super Polaris mount?

      Unfortunately, no, according to Vixen. The SP mount that Vixen made for Celestron and under their own name is different enough from the Vixen GP mount that the polar scope for the latter is not compatible with the earlier mount. You would need a polar s

    • What is the view through the reticule ? What kind of diagram is shown to line up polaris? Can you source a photo of this??

      Images of the reticle can be seen in the instruction manual here: http://psygr.belxm.servertrust.com/v/vspfiles/images/GP_Polar_Axis_Scope.pdf
