Re: How often do you need to polar align a permanent mount?

I just chatted with them just now, and they wanted to clarify they don't necessarily agree with a blanket statement "the more precise the PA the better"
Polar alignment error is only a problem when it creates image rotation and that’s pretty rare except for very wide field imaging. That’s not really the same as saying “the more precise the PA the better” unless high accuracy just falls out from using PoleMaster or something. Or unless you’re trying to run unguided, in which case it matters a lot.
