What is the procedure for using a Wixey Angle Gauge on a Dob

Recommended Posts

They are a must have.

What I do is:

Level the OTA and check with a level

Press zero on the guage

Then raise scope up to Polaris and check Altitude reading is correct.

If not then OTA couldn't have been dead level so readjust until Polaris is correct reading.

I have founs also that the more level your base is the more accurate the Wixey.
