Nice product I got this for my Celestron CGEM mount and it was a perfect fit. Thank you for the Fast delivery! (15/01/2020) Gunter - London
Excellent Swift delivery of my online order of a Celestron polar scope. This item is well built clear alignment images. The instructions could do with a review as the supplied images are ok but not the best, and indicates screws for collimating when actually these are Allen key drive screws.

AVX Polar Alignment made easy This polar finder scope has really improved my AVX mount alignment and GOTO precision. Having a quick way of setting it up has made observing much more enjoyable. The optics are very clear and sharp. My only gripe is you can't easily see the star patterns on the reticle as it's not illuminated. (26/11/2017) IanR - Greatstone, Kent, UK
