It looks great. If I had to bring it in I would leave it in the living room just so I could look at it every day. Of course I tried that with a few of my scopes in the past and my wife lets them stay for a few days and then asks "When are you going to bring it to the shed?"
At least she's still "asking" dont get worried until she don't! Then you've got real problems:ooo:

The full monty RA cordless illuminated Polar Finder (50mm) is around. Best of luck, I hope you find one.

My SP-C6 came with the illuminated polar finder. I think they all did.
Don't confuse a polar finder with a polar scope. Celestron included a nice Vixen finder scope with the the top of the line fork mounted scopes in the late '80 and early '90s. This isn't a true polar finder, but a RA finder scope with a specialized reticle to assist in setting up the fork's polar alignment.
I think you are correct that the SP came with a standard polar scope that sighted through the center bore of the RA axis. This scope will fit several later mounts including the GP-2 which is sold sans the scope. It will also fit the Orion SVP and the CGEM, too.
