      Comments about Celestron Polar Finder for CG-4 Omni Mount:

      The finder works great and is very easy to view the etching just as Polaris appears after sunset. My only issue was the instructions which did not provide enough detail regarding removal of the obsolete finder bracket.To remove it I tightened all three screws on the obsolete bracket to aid with grip and turned it counter clockwise. Once removed I could install the finder by turning clockwise.

          Comments about Celestron Polar Finder for CG-4 Omni Mount:

          This polar finder definitely has a room for improvement. At least illumination would be a great plus. It is really hard to see the black image in the finder against the black sky. Also instructions for alignment are not so clear. Another tricky thing was to put it on the mount. Again, instructions for it are not helpful at all. So I had to find my way how to make this thing work. It seems like Celestron created some sort of puzzle to keep an astronomer thinking. After I figured how find NCP it seems to work alright. Overall, the product is OK for the money, but I would prefer to spend a little more for an extra useful feature and more clear instructions. I would recommend this item to a friend because there is no alternative to choose from. Otherwise I would buy something else.

          Comments about Celestron Polar Finder for CG-4 Omni Mount:

          Easy to install. Instuctions to align with your mounts axis is a bit vague, but easy once you figure it out. The pattern is a bit hard to see when trying to get Polaris lined up in the dark, it would be improved with some red illumination.
