Re: Comparison of Rough Polar Alignment Methods

Fwiw I've used a compass and angle finder combo multiple times when I've shot in caves/blocked north view locations. It's tricky finding a spot where the compass is not reflected by the mount, but it's possible. I've managed 2 minute exposures with a 40mm lens (Sigma Art 40mm no less) with no trailing doing that method.
