polar alignment

For all of us that have an equatorial mount for their telescope and feel bewildered by all those dials and numbers on the mount here is some explanation and help thanks to Company 7 archives: http://www.company7.com/library/vixen/V ... +Findr.pdf This is from the Vixen super Polaris mount manual the accuracy of this mount was so good, all the manufacturers copied it I hope it explains it enough for you to try it. There will be more of these as I find them and Understand them to pass it on. Not every body knows all of this, I'm the first to say I don't but I want to learn.

Also, overview page with other Vixen materials: http://www.company7.com/library/vixen/notes.html
