    Hello,
    New member, first post.

    I have both the IEQ45 pro and the CEM60. One for visual, other for imaging. Didn't have a chance to really use them though, just tested it a bit.

    Does anyone have this problem?
    When I watch through the polar scope, the stars are sharp, but I have to turn the back of the polarscope to get the setting circles sharp in view. It does work, but then the eyepiece is quite loose, and the setting circles move when I bump into the polar scope eyepiece. I don't think it should do that
    Is there any way to secure the eyepiece and be sure my polar alignment will be spot on?

    (I plan to upgrade my firmware in the next days but I don't have the right piece to put it in the computer yet. I think there is a new polar alignment feature in the new firmware? I also have the polarmaster for my IEQ45 pro, but not for the CEM60. Both polar scopes have the same issue.)

    It sounds like the reticle is not in the right place within the polar scope. The stars and the markings should be in focus at the same time. If it came from the factory like that, you should replace it. If it got that way through wear and tear, it will need to be re-seated somehow.
