I found myself having some difficulty getting the paper setting circles I needed, so I decided to make an editable paper setting circle. The device I use is a Sky-Watcher 8-inch DOB, so I wrote an html file based on my device. If you need, you can open it with a browser, ctrl+p to print, select large-size paper such as A1, check background graphics in the option, and save it as pdf. Since I don't know the device parameters for other sizes, please modify it according to your own needs, such as changing it to a clockwise angle, inverting the color, or modifying the size of the paper setting circle.

I first read this as "edible". Need more coffee.

I read that way, too, when I first saw it.

I came to say the same thing. Not judging. I often need a snack in the middle of a long observing session
