helped Dietmar

Dietmar came into the house from the observatory asking for some help. He was trying correlate numbers he was getting from various programs regarding polar alignment. It reminded me of my exploits last year.

While he was entering data into his EQ mount's controller, I noticed he keyed 5 seconds as opposed to 5 hours. That helped a lot.

In the end, I think he was—like me—running into inconsistencies and ambiguities in this topic. I myself was getting a little confused. But I think we figured out the issues. He was satisfied.
