    Re: Polaris in daytime

    All stars are visible in daylight unless they're obscured by clouds. Seeing them is just a contrast problem. Generally to see fainter stars in daylight, they say you should use the highest magnification possible. It's counter-intuitive, but I think you'll find that magnification is the key here, not aperture. Aligning on the right spot in daylight used to be very difficult, but telescopes with computer-driven orientation have changed things. I don't own a computer-driven telescope to experiment with this. Anyone out there have one?
