Hi Oliver,

I’m not an expert on polar aligning (being mainly a visual alt-az user), but my understanding for drift alignment is that you should choose an alignment star near the celestial equator and your meridian, so this maximises the effect of the drift, which will be minimal if you choose Polaris(?).

Clear skies. Callum
