The unit attaches to the accessory shoe on the Polarie Star Tracker or any instrument equipped with a camera accessory shoe.

Easy 3 Step Set Up:

  • Set altitude scale to your location
  • Point the Polar Meter toward North
  • Level the meter so that the bubble is centered
  • Polaris is viewed through Polarie's Polar viewer

  • Altitude Scale: 5° increments (within +/- 70°)
