High Precision Wide Field of View
High Precision: The PoleMaster's pixel resolution is approximately 30 arc seconds. The camera's pixel matrix itself is a good ruler, so the accuracy it measures is much higher than the accuracy of the macroscopic lens. In the best case it can achieve an alignment accuracy of 30 arc seconds. Wide Field of View: The electronic polar mirror has a large field of view of 11 degrees x 8 degrees, so it is easy to find the Polaris.
You don't need to rotate your telescope to some uncomfortable position to keep the polar axis of the equatorial mount unobstructed.
One Star Calibration Tracking Accuracy
Once calibrated, you only need to perform a single-star sync. This makes the setup of an equatorial mount much easier.
Real Time Polar Tracking and Axis Adjustment
You can observe the alignment of the polar axis at any time, as well as continuously monitor the polar axis.
The Polemaster can be mounted to any equatorial mount.
