Too many scopes, not enough time...
George You know you're getting on when the equipment you farmed with is showing up as suburban lawn ornaments.
"If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants" was NOT a compliment.
Quote:The polar scope is the same body as was an option with the CG-5 - about 9/16th" in diameter and 4" long. As a Polaris option it came with a hub that threads on the lower RA spigot. The hub permits alignment of the scope. Installtion of the scope interfers with Alt/Az use. Probably easier to use your GLP in the RA axle.
