I am a member for some time, and I wanted my first post was more important, but due to things that are on lately I can't wait anymore.
I'm from Poland, city Poznan (link below)
About 2 weeks ago I noticed on my Casio Protek hand watch that Compass don't point North. When i bought it I calibrate it to point geographical North
(according to North star). I was returning home at night (sky was clear) when I saw this. I thought I need to recalibrate but then I forgot to do
this. Like 3 days ago I run into this topics about Compass being off and i recalled It. Today I took my normal and digital compass, put next to each
other and both were pointing exactly the same. So I run my Stellarium (astronomical program) and I coordinated the compasses pointing to the sun. My
calculates are that here Compass points like 45 deg. off N to like WN but i guess its even more W. Interesting that in US compass points more on E and
here in Europe much like W.
I have to test it in more locations, also i will ask my friends from other cities to do the same, and I'll report to u ATS.
Thanks for attention and sorry for my English
