1. Confirm you have Southern Hemisphere version.
2. Line up the date with the time you happen to be outside.
3. Pick a cardinal direction, I.e. NESW and face that direction.
4. Hold Planisphere vertical at arms length matching the cardinal direction printed on the Planisphere with the direction you are facing.
5. As the night progresses, rotate the Planisphere wheel to match the time.
6. The rotation of the sky around the south celestial pole will match the rotation of Planisphere.
