Hi Graham.

I used a digital inclinometer to set the angle of the guider and a digital compass to set the azimuth of the guider.

Takes about 2 minutes. It gives me a rough polar alignment which is good enough at 14mm but wouldn't be at 100mm.

I have a Polemaster setup for that and I am not really up to speed in using it yet. I have another tracker setup that uses a Vixen Polarie and that uses a Vixen Polar scope which I am used to using. It gives quite accurate polar alignment which takes me about 5 -15 minutes to do.

Greg.
