I am an amateur so sorry for any misunderstanding.
I am trying to find a deep-sky object located 1° north east from the
δ Cas star. I am using the Stellarium program to do this.
I have toggled on the equatorial grid and Cardinal points are displayed as well, however, all of the cardinal points appear to be on circumference and I cannot really tell which direction is the wanted object at.
What am I doing wrong?
