Thanks to friend Mitko in Bulgaria, I have added the polar axis rotation angle to pick up each satellite.

See http://www.satsig.net/sf.htm

Please if you have a polar mount tell me if the sideways rotation angle of the polar axis matches with satellites that you see.  If it is good this will be an added aid to setting up polar mounts if there is no satellite directly south (or north) of you.

I have not yet added this 'enhancement' to the other calculators until we get any bugs out.  

Best regards, Eric.
