Hi
Its been a few years since I posted here , work has not been compatible with late night time activities.. :(
Anyway I'm dusting off the kit to start again and I'm working on tools to speed up my set up time.

I've written a Windows app to help polar alignment, it should allow you to use a cheap webcam to do do what the expensive polarcams do.
In principle it works for northern and southern skies and it can work with any camera capable of putting an image on the screen.
Documentation is a bit light but I would welcome feedback from anyone willing to check it out.

Speedy Polar Alignment tool

Cheers,
Paul
