I have found this app to be most useful in polar alignment of my telescope. The level feature along with latitude gives me spot on alignment. – PPNewton

Astro Locator’s primary purpose is to help finding Polaris or Sigma Octantis.
It is of particular benefit to new astronomers who set up and break down each session, so is of great use to those without the luxury of an observatory.

Simple very effective way of getting my equatorial mount roughly polar aligned quickly. Having Coords, UTC and LST is handy too for calibrating the go-to system. – scopestar
