The earlier discussion on this topic caused me to think about my setup.
I know the tracking programs use True North; my question: If my
declination is 8 º 6' West, is my true north East or West of Magnetic
North. I am currently setup to where my True North is 8º East of
Magnetic North. I have looked a various sights on the Internet but I
have always had a problem wrapping my thick brain around this topic.
