Vixen Polarie PF-L Illuminated Polar Scope
Allows for a precise polar alignment for long exposure astro photography.
The Vixen Polarie Illuminated Polar Scope PF-L uses a simple three star alignment process which eliminates the need to use setting circles. There is a smart phone app to assist with set up available for Android and iOS phones.
You might think that it is a really expensive piece in comparison to other illuminated or non-illuminated polar scopes, but we tell you honestly, this is a real marvel, so to say, it's the Rolls-Royce of polarscopes.
There is a very fine 8-position illuminator that automatically switches off after about 2 minutes or a bit more to save the battery. There is also a push button to simply reactivate it at the level of brightness that was last time used.
It also comes with a 30-page instruction where you will find detailed desctription of how to polar align on the Northern or Southern Hemispheres.
Alternatively you can download the "PF-L Assist" app for your Android phone, iPhone or Kindle Fire... just search for "PF-L Assist" in Google Play, Apple App Store or Amazon Apps for Kindle Fire.
