iOptron announces the PoleMaster ($299), an electronic polar finder scope that helps you quickly and easily achieve near-perfect polar alignment. The PoleMaster is a small optic with an integrated camera that attaches in front of the polar finder scope on most iOptron equatorial mounts. Once installed, the unit functions in conjunction with the included PoleMaster PC software, which quickly plots your polar star field and marks where the true polar axis is, allowing you to adjust your alignment until you are within 30 arcminutes. Its optical alignment can be calibrated to match the true rotational axis of your mount. PoleMaster connects to Windows PCs via a Mini USB cable. Be sure to select the proper adapter for your mount when ordering.
