Does anyone know where I can get one.
Is it possable to use other brands, because
I can't find one.

Thanks Dave

Not sure about where to find the polar scope, my LXD650 came with one.
I see no reason why you could not use another brand if the diameter and thread were the same. Perhaps a Orion one could be made to fit with a little ingenuity? smile

Scope City shows one on their website. Might be worth a call.

There is a great little program available for free on-line for the Meade Polar Scope. It shows the position of Polaris in the scope reticle for any time or date. Shows the position as if you were looking through the scope. Very nice!
