Re: Finding Polaris?

I just purchased the IOptron Skyguider Pro with the IPolar electronic polar scope. Some older models are compatible for the IPolar scope, you would have to install it yourself however.

I use an app on my phone to point the tripod in the general direction, then turn on the laptop connected to ipolar. The laptop will show my how to fine tune polar adjustment. IPolar works even if Polaris is behind a cloud since it looks ate other stars as well. I found the initial learning curve acceptable, and after 2-3 tries I could polar align perfectly in a few minutes.
