This item was on display at one of our retailers. It was used to demonstrate Polarie in the store.  It is in perfect working condition and without showing any wear.  Please look closely at the images and you will notice no marks, dings or dents.  I tested the unit with fresh batteries and it works as new.  90 day warranty

 

From our web site: Everyone can be an Astrophotographer! Use Your Polarie with your Digital Camera or our smart phone adapter. The Polarie Star Tracker Mount attaches to a standard camera tripod and can accept any digital camera weighing up to 7 lbs. Using the included compass on the Polarie, orient the mount to face north. This easy to use mount features a North Star alignment window that you point at Polaris. The Polarie Mount can also use a polar scope for alignment. Once set, the Polarie tracks with the motion of the stars to eliminate “star trailing” on your photos resulting in sharp images of the Universe.

The Polarie Star Tracker from Vixen is designed to not only be functional, but also to be compact and attractive. The unit has no visible screws and although, not waterproof, it is designed to function in most weather conditions.  It is small enough to fit easily in your camera bag.
