5 of 5 iPolar Polarscope June 13, 2020
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Wimberley, TX United States  
This polar camera is excellent! I mounted mine in a iOptron IEQ45 Pro. Usually polar alignment takes about 15 minutes with the scope. With the iPolar about 5 minutes and the rig is aligned much better than with the original polar scope.

5 of 5 iPolar April 27, 2020
Reviewer: John Wentzel from Kyalami, gauteng South Africa  
I purchased this and fitted it to my Skyguider Pro. It's amazing. Takes me about 5 minutes to get polar alignment now. Runs on Windows 10. It was easy to fit and works like a charm. Now I can spend my time taking photos not battling to get a polar alignment. Highly recommended.

1 of 5 doesn't work with Linux, Kstars, Ekos, Stellarmate March 22, 2020
Reviewer: Werner Kuballa from San Jose, CA United States  
iOptron does not provide a driver for Linux, i.e., you have to have a dedicated Windows system to run iOptron's application.

4 of 5 Becoming excellent: has MacOS, needs IOS/Android March 1, 2020
Reviewer: William Shaw from Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire United Kingdom  
I’ve had mine in a CEM40 since May 2019 and the software is now excellent on both Windows and MacOS. A new plate-solving engine is common to both in Win 2.1 and Mac V1.1. Gremlins in early versions have gone and I rarely have problems now. I’ve run it on a MacBook Pro under Parallels until the Mac version appeared in early 2020. They are not identical - Mac wants lat-long in decimal form and still wants 3 positions confirmed. People might need to check their permissions to use the camera or save dark files.

It usually takes me about 2 min to align. The only thing I don’t like is the lack of phone support, even in cabled form, and I hope MacOS support is soon followed by IOS and Android.
