I guess that for better accuracy it should show about 1.5 degrees East, but the scales are very difficult to achieve too much accuracy with, due to the nature of the size of the divisions and the fact that they do not correspond once further out on the arc..

The minus is a convention for westward, Thor is at -1

-2.152 -(-1) = -1.512 ie. 1.512w

I think :(
