Did a short google search for 'polar alignment without polaris' and quick look at finds and this looked like it could be useful.

Hi folks, APT (Astro Photography Tool) have announced a new Beta which supports Altair Cameras directly without having to use ASCOM.

If you'd like to be involved in the Beta, you need an existing APT license and an Altair Camera (which most of you have already!)

Here is an explanation of how to invoke direct support, what needs to be tested, and where to feed back on their forum:

http://aptforum.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=1828

Please take some time to try this as it will benefit you and all users of Altair Cameras

Many thanks!

PS: Please post any feedback on the APT forum where it can be acted on efficiently, and stops duplication with other Beta testers finding the same issue.

I have something like that in my balcony.
With planets staying enough for imaging the requirements are minimal.
You only need to use your location information for latitude (between 0-90 North) and you can use compass for longitude (East-West).
For more accuracy you can use drift alignment but for planets it's not needed.

I’ve moved to a location where by I can only see a small part of the south facing sky ,
So I cannot see the polestar, to be honest I cant see much at all except one or two planets and the moon, my question is because I cannot get a polar alignment, how can I get the mount to stay fixed on a planet or the moon, so I can at lest use a webcam to grab some data my mount is a CGEM-DX many thanks Dave
sorry i think i have posted this in the wrong section

It is nice to finally see some activity on the Sun.

This image which I took this morning, shows a lot of fine detail within the photosphere.
