When doing polar alignment with the AAP, which camera does it use for polar alignment, the main or guide camera?

What ever is currently registered as the Main camera is used for polar alignment.

 

ie, if for some reason you want to use the guide camera for polar alignment, just make your guide camera the main camera until you finish polar alignment
