Polar scope for a cg5 gt mount
      #5734787 - 03/15/13 07:48 PM

Have a question guys. On my mount do I unscrew the original piece that is there with the three thumb screws then attach the polar scope, or just loosen the 3 thumb screws and just slide the scope in there?

I believe it's for an older model polar scope.
