Frank you said: I find that it's most useful to have a good understanding of the meridian altitude of the celestial equator, which is the same thing numerically; its 38° high.
Wow! That took me a long time to get my head around. Well ten minutes. I see it now. It’s the meridian altitude that a star on the Celestial Equator would have (i.e. a star of declination zero) for an observer at 52N. DaveP
