The Orion Right-Angle 1X-2X Viewer for Polar Scopes makes the knee-muddying, neck-cramping process of polar alignment a whole lot easier. It slides over your mount’s polar axis scope and provides a more-comfortable 90-degree viewing angle. It also swivels left or right for even greater viewing convenience.
The built-in amici prism serves up the same image orientation as the polar scope, and you can even double the magnification of the polar scope’s field of view and reticle pattern by sliding the power switch from 1x to 2x, to better discern fine details.
The viewer fits polar scopes of 25mm to 30mm diameter. It is compatible with the following Orion mounts and other mount brands with similarly sized polar scopes:
– Orion AstroView Equatorial Mount
– Orion Sirius EQ-G Computerized GoTo Mount
– Orion Atlas EQ-G Computerized GoTo Mount
– Orion Sirius Pro AZ/EQ-G Computerized GoTo Mount
– Orion Atlas Pro AZ/EQ-G Computerized GoTo Mount
– Orion Atlas II EQ-G Computerized GoTo Mount
– StarShoot Compact Astro Tracker
– Orion Polar Alignment Scope for SkyView Pro/Atlas Mounts
The Orion Right-Angle 1X-2X Viewer for Polar Scopes is equipped with a machined aluminum adapter with three thumbscrews to provide a highly secure and centered attachment to your mount’s polar scope. Other features include a focusing ring and a soft rubber eyecup to center your eye and block ambient light.
Polar aligning an equatorial mount shouldn’t mean having to endure grass-stained trouser knees and a sore neck every time. Try a new angle! You can learn more about the Orion Right-Angle 1X-2X Viewer for Polar Scopes here.
