How to use the Polar Scope with Reticle 1

First of all, the polar scope has two focus rings. So if the lens of the scope is out of focus (looks like a fog inside), please twist these rings to refocus. This part will be like "unscrewed" when you twist it, it's normal.

North Hemisphere:

1. Mount the illuminator provided to the polar scope. With the light it gives, you can see the reticle better in the dark. Screw it into the screw hole on the scope's top. Press the white button to turn it on/off.

2. For iOS users, please download and open the app "Polar Scope Align Pro"; For  Android users, please download and open the app “Polar Finder Pro”.  Select the iOptron reticle.

  • Note: Please keep the bubble in the middle of the bubble level so the reticle inside the polar scope will be upright.
