Polar scope EQ5/CG5

Recommended Posts

Sorry, this probably way too late for an answer, but I only just noticed this post.

Yes, after asking a similar question on here, I bought a new EQ5 polar scope for my CG5 mount, and it fitted perfectly. Same thread, same diameter hole, same length. The mount casting appear to be identical.

I received some great advice on here, explaining the "new" reticule which works in conjunction with a free computer program that makes it very easy to set the exact offset of the pole star for any date/time.

Here's the polar scope that I bought (though from a different (UK) supplier)  https://astrogarten-shop.de/en/accessories/mounts-tripods/optional-parts-accessories/sky-watcher-hm6-polar-scope.html
