How do you polar align your 900GTO ?

So: What is your procedure for setting up your 900GTO (or 1200GTO for that matter) when you're starting from scratch (not in an observatory)?

After the polar scope I will use PemPro, which comes with the mount, to further refine the alignment. Pempro is basically drift aligning using your CCD camera.
I can usually be ready to image within 30+ minutes after dark, if all goes well.
Enjoy your new mount!

Or do you do a new star alignment after the drift alignment ?
