I found that I can use the Sky Scan app on my iPhone to roughly orient my mount toward Polaris to begin a polar align. The app gives you a picture of the heavens day or night, using the camera in your phone. You can simply touch the camera of the phone to the mount's polar scope and it shows you on the iPhone if Polaris is within the scope's range. This enables me to position the mount roughly so using the fine tuning alt/as knobs for a polar alignment are within reach of Polaris when I'm looking through the scope. Works for me.
