Does the job but flimsy and poorly made

Functions ok but the quality of production is very poor.
Cheap and nasty feel and function. Poor switches BUT it does illuminate the polariscope well enough.

These aren't available in the US, but after I got it, WOW, I'm wondering why I waited so long...
It makes alignment a breeze.

Fits my cg5 mount but it would be good to have a closing cap. Very faint red light but it's ok.

Q1. Is there an on/off switch or does the dimmer do the same?

There isnít a separate on/off switch, when the dimmer is set to the lowest position the light is off and the battery isnít being used.
