drift simulations

Did some drift timing trials in Stellarium. So to get some real time approximations for measuring drift angle.

Set Stellarium to use a C14 with a 26mm, yielding a 0.42° field. This is close to the 19' field in the C8 with the 40D and the doubler.

For 41 Dra, which is very near NCP, I noted a drift time of 10 minutes. Wow!

Then I chose 21 Mon, very near the equator and meridian. It booked. 2 minutes.
