I think the correct image in the reticle is inverted.  This is because the polar scope is only a refractor.  If you had a mirror for a right angle then you would have to invert and mirror. If you are peeking through the rabbit hole then you would use the correct view.   I don't use the danged things tho so  could be all wet.


Exos2 Polar scope use inverted
Iexos rabbit hole use correct
Iexos polar scope use inverted

If you use a finder scope with a mirror use the inverted plus mirror.
