Already, in the gathering dusk, a few of the stars are turning on their lights.

Vega, the brightest one, is now dropping towards the west. Can it be half

a year since I watched her April rising in the east? Low in the southwest

Subject: [ap-gto] New polar alignment method (Re: New file uploaded to ap-gto)

As promised, I have uploaded the polar alignment method that i mentioned earlier. Take a look and see if this would be of use to you. You can use this method for a fixed mount to get precise alignment on the pole, northern or southern hemisphere. For a portable mount you can use this to establish the reference for your polar scope so that you can re-create good polar alignment for subsequent setups in the field.

Critiques and questions are welcome.
