Hi

I have a qustion about the iOptron iEQ45 mount. Does it have a polar Alignment routine similar to the All Star Polar Alignment routine that the CGEM and CG5 mounts have?

Best

It uses a polar alignment scope and a polaris position display on the HC. No iterative routines are built into the controller...John
