iOptron iPolar Electronic Polar Finder (may require adapter)

Introducing iOptron iPolar™ - a high precision, easy to use electronics polarscope (e-PS).

Note: Some mounts will require an adapter for fitment, for an additional $20 USD. When this is the case, the relevant product part number is for the iPolar camera and its adapter together. Otherwise, the part number (3339) is for the camera alone. See the list of supported iOptron mounts below...

While one particular adapter might be recommended, or "standard", one or more others may work as well, depending on where you desire to attach the iPolar camera.

What makes iPolar unique?

  1. Can be easily installed inside the RA shaft on all iOptron equatorial mounts (except SmartEQ Pro).
  2. Can be used on any mounts with adapters either internally or externally.
  3. USB plug and play; no driver needed.
  4. Works globally, no need to set northern and southern hemisphere.
  5. No visible Polaris (north) or Sigma Octantis (south) necessary.
  6. No need to rotate the mount during polar alignment process.

iPolar is a smart electronic polarscope for everyone.
