Imagine that. Given that the peephole is built in to the Polarie, it's almost as if Vixen knew what they were doing.

Yes! and our sore necks drive us to avoid the obvious & effective tool right in front of our face!

I've been curious about the new Slik ECH-630 tracker w/ a large & small peep hole. Wonder if the small one is usable & gives better alignment. The small hole on the Nano is harder to use than the Vixen.

I find it especially significant that a smartphone, which is essentially a fairly high-powered computer that can also make phone calls, is not as good as a zero-powered hole. So much for high technology.

Well just remember a Pole Master is also technology but purpose built. But this proves phone can't do everything - duh.
