The polar scope of the Star Adventurer has a template in which the trapezium in which the pole star sigma Oct is.


When you make widefields, it suffices to center the +6.9 BQ Oct in the field as it is very close (10') to the Pole. This star, despite being fainter than +5.5 Sigma Oct, is visible in most polar scopes.
