Re: Star Tracker alignment

I use some smartphone apps. I set south (I am in the Southern Hemisphere) using the compass app. It seems quite accurate and I don't think its affected too much by the metal in the tripod or camera.

I set the angle using a digital inclinometer free app to my local latitude.

That gives me round stars 30 seconds at 14-21mm.
