I am at that point where I must learn how to do drift alignment. I have read three or four methods and had specific questions regarding the orientation of the reticle when starting the process. The way I understand it is after choosing a star near the celestial equator in the south (close to the meridian) I have to orient the reticle so that the star travels more or less parallel along one of the lines in the reticle. If i do this while adjusting declination back and forth have I found the North/South direction? I hope I am making sense here! Also, will this final orientation bear any relationship to the horizon? Or will it be skewed or haphazard? Lastly does it make a difference if I use a right angle?
