Re: Need additonal settings or controls for the meridian flip

Re: Drift alignment

Wow! Thanks a lot, Chen, for explanations and insights! It is really helpful! Especially the fact that there is no need for more or less exact alignment on to polar star! This will save a lot of time while setting up. Still, IMHO, the need to see the northern side is a serious issue for many potenti...
