    Re: DIY Starfinder - a lockdown project

    Dear Tibor,

    As I study your project - few questions I have:

    • why do you mark the stars (transparent) overlay for latitudes? They are supposed to be just two such overlays - one for the Northern the other for the Southern hemisphere.
    • did you place the Declination scale on the base plate where it will not obscure the Almukantar/Azimuth grid (Alt/Az) too much? The fact that the end of that scale points to 165° is irrelevant, right?
    • the Analemma's axis is aligned with the local meridian - pointing to 180°, right?

    Thanks again for the project, looking forward for its' development!

    Warm regards,
    Tony
