Is there a source for the (rear) polar finder cover for Super Polaris/CG5 type mounts? just about every one I see has them missing.
You would think there would be a supplier for this easily broken/lost part.

Which end cover are you looking for? If you need the flat round cover for the front of the polar scope, give ADM a call.

Looking for the rear Polar finder cover. the cone shaped one that always cracks after about the 4th or 5th time you pack it in the back seat..
You can get the CGEM from Celestron but not the CG-5

I have had some success with parts that do not appear on the parts site, by e-mailing Celestron an making a request.
