Star adventurer polar illumiator adapter

Recommended Posts

Hello

im going to order one of the polar adapters for the SA, since its only in use with the dovetail bar, im assuming you need to add weight on the other end or will you get away without??

It looks a fairly small gizmo and presumably quite light, so probably will not cause any major issues, and will probably be taken care of during the normal "balancing" procedure. I would certainly be inclined to try it without any additional weights and if you start having problems worry about it at that point.

I have one of these. Just plug it onto the DT where the polar scope lens is, and polar align.

Mu point is that to use the polarscope in place you cannot just put the ballhead on centrally but have to use the dovetail bar which the ball head then screws onto, hence putting weight to one side, I would assume it requires a counter weight to balance it?
