5 of 5 Works great! October 28, 2020
Reviewer: Steve L from Suwanee, GA United States  
I'm far from an experienced user but this scope was very easy to install and use. Included software is nothing elegant but works everytime. Very fast to get aligned which is important to me.

1 of 5 Poor software support October 22, 2020
Reviewer: Raymond Lillard from Redwood City, CA United States  
I have recently purchased a brand new CEM25EC to use as a grab-n-go for short refractor/DSLR excursions.  I came here to the iOptron web-site to purchase my third iPolar and and am very disappointed to see that iOptron still has only Windows support for this product.

The iPolar has been in the market for two years and still has only windows support. !!!!

I am not buying another until there is Android support so I don't have to drag a laptop along for accurate polar alignment.

1 of 5 Failed to connect to camera October 2, 2020
Reviewer: J Taylor from SANTA FE, NM United States  
I connect to the iPolar just fine, but the camera “Camera failed to connect”. iPolar app talks just fine to iPolar, all except the camera. Windows camera security permits app access the camera. iPolar shows up in the Windows Device Manager. I tried a powered USB3 hub. Again no camera connection. Powered hub I connected to the cameras with other camera-using apps such as Skype or a Mac camera app, I get different results. With the Mac app I see images through the iPolar scope. With Skype/Win10, I now get a green image from iPolar.

1 of 5 Does not connect September 11, 2020
Reviewer: Karl Sarnow from Hannover, NI Germany  
I am using a windows 10 laptop. Connecting the camera to the USB port starts the installation procedure and I get a message that the iOptron guider camera has setup. Then starting the iPolar software and pressing the "connect" button, I get the message that the camera is not detected.

What now?

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.
