This Polaris Guiding Plate would have been a stock accessory with the Meade and Celestron 8x50 right angled finder guiders as well as the 8x50 straight thru, the 9x50 straight thru, and the rare 10x60 right angle models. All of these would have the Vixen stamp on them. The Taiwanese and later Chinese clones of these finders never came with the guiding plate.

These "wheels" are becoming hard to find these days because though they are treated cardboard, they still cannot survive heavy handling, bad storage habits, or being played with by kids. This one is from a 1991 8x50 Polaris unit that I decided to break-up years ago from my Super C8, but always kept this guiding plate.

It is in very excellent condition overall with no functioning issues, and its shape is true.

All nations welcome to bid!
