Aiming high and low!

Bizibilder finally had clearish skies tonight – about 6/10ths cloud so he was able to get to the Observatory and roughly align the polar axis of his telescope mounting with Polaris.  Unfortunately the black cross that he had drawn did not show up too well in the night sky!!  This was an exercise in rough alignment so that he can mark out and drill the final fixing holes that attach the mount adaptor to the top plate of the mounting .
