Polar axis scope with SCP printed reticule
      #5658825 - 02/02/13 08:04 PM

Hello to all viewers, is there any one out there that can direct me to a USA dealer for supply of a Polar axis scope for South Celestial pole with printed reticule on Octans.
My Orion Atlas EQG computerized GoTo mount came with the Polaris printed on reticule and no good to me as I live in Southern Hemisphere.
Some one has already suggested the Celestron CG5 polar scope which has SCP printed reticule but are trying to get a hold of one that also has the date circle with latitude scale printed on ring that surrounds the axis scope which I believe is found on the Skywatcher NEQ6/EQ6 & EQ5.
Basically I need a Polar scope with SCP printed reticule and printed scale ring that will fit into my Orion EQG mount (mount is the latest model out with illuminated LED to reflect into polar scope - purchased in 2012)

Many thanks to anyone who can help
