Basic Polar Alignment

The video shows a daytime set-up of an equatorial mount with a polar scope and demonstrates how one rotates the telescope's right ascension axis to align the view in the polar scope to correspond with the position of the Big Dipper and Cassiopeia.  One then makes altitude and azimuth adjustments to centre Polaris in the position marked in the polar scope. This video is also included in the EQ3 and ED80 Complete Set-Up video
