This was a hard one, it's quite long and I do these totally unscripted. A few tips on levelling and precise mount & polar scope alignment.

NOTE When referring to synscan HA time and transit times with regards setting RA clock, the time you want is hours since last transition and not actual time of transition, so basically, find time of last transition and count how many hours and minutes ago it was to current time. (it will become clear when you watch lol) As usual I've tried to keep it simple.

Also remember that you can practice this at home during cloudy weather, if you start polarfinder and keep it on screen it acts as a realtime polaris tracker, constantly showing polaris's position with regard your polar scope.
