Being an amateur astronomer and a member in good standing of the Mauna 
Kea Astronomical Society, I must tell you that the North Star wobbles 
1/2 degree, which is about one full moon diameter.

So, depending on the time of year you orientate your beam, you could be 
off 1/2 degree.

You could miss all of Europe.
