Lensatic Compass for Standard-Duty Tripod
Why is it important to pre-align the tripod?
When setting up their dish, most people make the mistake of holding the compass in their hand, near the dish, and attempt to aim the dish in the direction the compass is pointing. What they fail to realize is the dish is made of steel, which attracts the magnetic needle, throwing off the heading. This compass has been specifically designed for use with the Standard-Duty Tripod, which contains no steel materials that would effect the compass heading. It can still be used as a hand-held compass, but will not work with any other tripod in this manner.
Complete instructions for pre-alignment are included.
