    I put this between my camera tripod head and my Polarie then did rough alignment using the camera tripod, locked that into position. Then I used the micro adjustment for polar alignment. Locked off with the lokcing knobs and it tracks fine so I'm happy with it and works as advertised.
  • Author: Kevin Ellis
    I got much better tracking when with my polarie as I found it difficult to polar align before due to my tripod being a little sticky for fine movements -Kev
  • Author: Jon Gurley
    ordered this because it addresses the main issue with the Vixen Polarie - namely no fine adjustable AZ base!
  • Author: J Mayer
    I'm using this with Nikon D700 and 50mm lens mounted on my Meade LX200. Very precise adjustment and easy to lock off using the large knob on the other side. It's a well built product at a reasonable price. J
