Re: Finding Polaris?

This might help.

If your tripod head or wedge has a degree scale, you can set it during the day, which will hopefully get you very close to Polaris without having to fumble around in the dark, making it a little easier to find. Use a compass to get the azimuth direction, and then the declination scale on the head for the height. If it doesn't have a scale, you could make one.
