Meade LX70 and Polar Alignment Scope

With the Meade LX70 mount, I also purchased the Polar Alignment Scope.  Again, I had to download the instructions off of the Meade website.  It was easy to remove the existing item and screw the polar alignment scope in.

However, I was confused when I looked through it.  I couldn’t see anything.  I looked at the other end and it seemed to be blocked.  But, there wasn’t anything in the manual and thought I was just missing something.  But, then I turned a part of the mount and it was revealed the piece inside had a different shape.  Problem solved.

The next step is to align with the mount but that will be for another time.
