1. First, follow the tutorial "How to use DWARF II to shoot the sun?" to complete the initial setup.
2. Level the DWARF II.
Note: The level can be tilted up to 3 degrees and still ensure that the sun remains in view for 1 hour or more during tracking. Occasionally, it may be necessary to manually move the sun back to the center.
We can use the built-in level of our phone to check for horizontal alignment (usually found in the compass app). The following picture shows the tilt measurement using the compass app on a Redmi K50.
2.1 Not using a tripod The base of DWARF II can be placed directly on some level surfaces, such as a table or balcony. Then, place the phone flat on the table or balcony like DWARF II, and use the phone's level to measure the tilt. When the app displays a tilt within 3 degrees, it is good to go.
2.2 Leveling DWARF II when using a tripod Rotate DWARF II 90 degrees to expose the base.
Open the phone's built-in level app and place the phone on the base of DWARF II, ensuring that the phone is level with the base. When the app displays a tilt within 3 degrees, it is good to go.
