The polar scope is used to accurately align the equatorial mount of your AP system to
the north or south celestial pole. Polar alignment is easy as you simply bring Polaris and two
other stars into the polar scope's field of view so that each can be matched with the designated
position on the scale on the polar scope's reticle. No hour setting angle is necessary.
-The switch on the brightness adjustment dial of the polar alignment scope will illuminate
the reticle in red when activated. The brightness can be adjusted in 8 levels by turning the
brightness adjustment dial. The red light becomes gradually dimmer after a certain interval
of time (about one or two minutes) and turn off automatically.
-A free app called PF-L assist for smart-phones and tablets is available for making good use
of the polar alignment scope. It will assist in displaying the current night sky which can be
seen in your location through the polar alignment scope PF-L.
