This battery operated LED illuminator easily attaches to the exit hole of the polar axis bore of Sky-Watcher EQ3-2 and EQ5 and Celestron CG-5 and AVX and CGEM Equatorial Mounts.
Provides illumination to the polarscope reticule. A useful aid to the polar alignment procedure.
Adjustable light intensity.

I got one of these with my Star Adventurer Pro and it works a treat on that (5 stars), but is very dim on my EQ3-2 mount, I can barely see the red light even with a new battery. Bit of a shame because having the reticle illuminated (and without having to hold a torch over the hole) makes like *so* much easier.
Note that there isn't an off switch, even turned to min brightness it still glows very slightly, so to save battery unscrew the cap between use.
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.
