This useful accessory speeds accurate polar alignment by providing a means of visually aligning your German equatorial mount with Polaris and true north. As a result, you can spend more time observing and less time setting up. The finderscope has an easy to use cross hair reticle.
For use with CG-4 (Omni) mounts.

Easy to install, easy to use, but in dark conditions you can't see the etching. Needs to be illuminated.
I bought with the hopes of getting it to fit my early CG-4 mount. I did get it to work and it works well. The early CG-4 tube is too tight to accept this polar axis finder...had to hone out the tube about 0.020 inch to get it to fit. Once installed, it was dead-on and needed only minor adjustments.
