Please Note

Orion has made the difficult decision to close our warehouse facility in the Netherlands. With the continuing supply chain/logistics challenges and slowness in the economy we have found that it is not economically feasible to maintain operations in the UK and Europe.

We have therefore stopped taking orders on this website. We apologize for any inconvenience.

We will continue to have Orion dealers in Europe to meet the needs of Orion consumers. We will also continue to honor the 30-Day product return period as well as honoring the Orion warranty for purchases made in the UK and Europe.

Our US-based Customer Service Representatives are here to help. Contact them via email at support@telescope.com or in the United Kingdom, via phone at 0-800-041-8146 (Monday-Friday between the hours of 1300 and 2400 GMT).

Polar aligning an equatorial mount can be, quite literally, a pain. Because it often involves getting down on your knees in the wet grass or dirt while craning your neck to look up through the mount's polar scope. And then holding your head and back and legs still in that contorted position while you try to make minute adjustments to your mount's azimuth and altitude axes. There has got to be a better way....

Now there is! The Orion Right-Angle 1X-2X Viewer for Polar Scopes makes the knee-muddying, neck-cramping process of polar alignment a whole lot easier. It slides over your mount's polar axis scope and provides a more-comfortable 90-degree viewing angle. It also swivels left or right for even greater viewing convenience. The built-in amici prism serves up the same image orientation as the polar scope, and you can even double the magnification of the polar scope's field of view and reticle pattern by sliding the power switch from 1x to 2x, to bettern discern fine details.

The Right-Angle 1X-2X Viewer for Polar Scopes fits polar scopes of 25mm to 30mm diameter. It is compatible with the following Orion mounts and other mount brands with similarly sized polar scopes:

  • Orion AstroView Equatorial Mount
  • Orion Sirius EQ-G Computerized GoTo Mount
  • Orionn Atlas EQ-G Computerized GoTo Mount
  • Orion Sirius Pro AZ/EQ-G Computerized GoTo Mount
  • Orion Atlas Pro AZ/EQ-G Computerized GoTo Mount
  • Orion Atlas II EQ-G Computerized GoTo Mount
  • StarShoot Compact Astro Tracker
  • Orion Polar Alignment Scope for SkyView Pro/Atlas Mounts

The Orion Right-Angle 1X-2X Viewer for Polar Scopes is equipped with a machined aluminum adapter with three thumbscrews to provide a highly secure and centered attachment to your mount's polar scope. Other features include a focusing ring and a soft rubber eyecup to center your eye and block ambient light.

Polar aligning an equatorial mount shouldn't mean having to endure grass-stained trouser knees and a sore neck every time. Try a new angle! Get the Orion Right-Angle 1X-2X Viewer for Polar Scopes today.
