Gday Chris/All

For the purpose of doing a cal sensors
another rough way to do it is

a) Do a std align and confirm the general pointing is OK.
b) Do a "goto" to Polaris
c) When there, even tho you cant see it
just mark your setting circles
( I use masking tape with a fine pencil line at times )

Now start the cal sensors
When it asks you to centre Polaris
just slew to the premarked positions and hit enter.
This will normally get you within 1/2 a degree or better.
