Purchased and installed it but it was covered on both ends in a 9.25 CGEM mount and frankly forgot to use it.  A case of out of sight out of mind.

See photo of where this was integrated and protected (and went unused)

Product Description

Get
some help polar aligning your Celestron CGEM, Advanced VX, or CG-5
mount with the addition of the Polar Finderscope. Install the finder
into the polar finder port, located at the rear of the mount, and focus
the eyepiece until the reticle is sharp. The reticle is etched with a
few recognizable star patterns to help you align your telescope. If you
are using your telescope in the Northern Hemisphere, you will recognize
the Big Dipper asterism on the reticle, as well as the familiar “W” of
Cassiopeia. Use the Big Dipper to guide you in the spring and summer
months, and Cassiopeia during the fall and winter. The North Star,
Polaris, is also designated on the reticle, as is the NCP, or North
Celestial Pole. Once you choose which star pattern to use, align your
telescope so that the stars line up with the positions shown on the
reticle, then move the telescope’s azimuth and altitude adjustment
controls to place Polaris right in the crosshairs. The Celestron Polar
Axis Finder can also be used in the Southern Hemisphere. Four stars of
the constellation Octans are etched in the reticle. Adjust your
telescope until those stars line up as shown on the reticle.
