Comments about iOptron SkyTracker Polar Scope:
I use an Astrotrac mount and recently discovered that this polar scope is a far better one than the original Astrotrac scope, provided that you modify a plumbing drain pipe to allow adjustment of this scope when placed within it (for details, subscribe to the Astrotrac Yahoo group and check for the Ioptron scope mod under the files section). For a total of around $90 for the scope + mod pieces, you are far closer to achieving that perfect polar alignment. Ioptron's Iphone app is great for precisely locating Polaris. Complete the mods, find Polaris with the app, and adjust your mount! That's it! Hayneedle seems to be one of the few firms offering the scope as a separate purchase from the Skytracker/ scope combo, so purchase while it's offered! Good luck, but remember that your mileage many vary as there are other issues that could crop up with modifications.
