What is an EZAlign?
The EZAlign™ is a polar alignment scope. It allows a telescope to be quickly and easily aligned with the North or South pole. A time consuming initial alignment must be made using the star drift method. All later alignments will be as good as this initial alignment but far less time consuming. To do a subsequent alignment, you simply rotate the scope to align the constellation reticle with your naked eye view of the sky then adjust the telescope mount to align two stars with the reticle. The reticle illuminator includes an automatic shutoff feature.
Although this EZAlign Polar Alignment scope is mounted on a bracket intended for use with a Meade EQ Starfinder, owners of Meade LX or Celestron fork mounted SCTs may be able to modify the bracket for use with their scopes or mount the bracket to the tilt plate of their equatorial wedge to allow the wedge and mount to be polar aligned prior to mounting the scope on the wedge. The reticle illumination battery is new. Instructions included for mounting on the Meade EQ Starfinder. Attaching screws and nuts not included, but suitable replacements can be found at any hardware store.
