Re: Comparison of Rough Polar Alignment Methods

Illuminated Vixen Polar scope works well. Its harder in the southern hemisphere as Sigma Octans is a dim star but there are tricks.

I also have a polemaster which attaches to the arm on the Fornax Lightrack 11.

I have yet to use it but practising with it showed the software for it is reasonably user friendly. But now that requires a laptop or perhaps an Ipad. For me that is probably worth it to gain the accuracy.
