Star Alignment

With a mobile phone attached to your mount and a planetarium app like SkySafari Pro you can do a rough polar alignment and even a star alignment that can reach an accuracy of about 1° (good enough for visual observations!). This setup can even be used during the day - for preparation or simulation.
