Re: Rotating pier adapter #Polar_Alignment


Well, I have plenty of those (and often the mag difference or other metallic structures, can easily throw them off in the observatory); just walk around with one.  

For this application, aside from owning a compass, is a mobile PierTech trailer observatory.  Often, one cannot easily "park" this 9x9 device so that its internal pier is within 5 degrees of the NSP and many times you don't have a choice as to where to back it in a field and park in an assigned star party slot.  

Therefore, I need to rotate the mount as much as 270 degrees on occasion before I do my temporary pier modeling.  

I agree North is easy to find.....
