Can't I do a quick two star alignment and start observing?
For visual observing without GOTO, I just sight Polaris through the

If I want to use GOTO with fairly good accuracy, I align with the polar
scope then calibrate--no iterations needed. That is good enough to get
well inside the field of a decent sized eyepiece.
