  They could be talking about one of two things. Either its 
real(GC)/apparent(HC) daily motion about the celestial pole, or (more likely) 
the precession of the whole heavens slowly over time. Either way does not 
affect the celestial poles argument that disproves heliocentricity.

    That's fine Neville. What then do astronomers mean when they talk about the 
pole star precessing?As I understand, it is a quick solution to some kind of

      Just answering the technical questions in your post. Sorry for the delay.

      The way the stars should look is almost exactly like the image shown in 
the lecture, with the pole being the south ecliptic pole and the time period 
being 1 year. Perhaps I ought to have said in the lecture that the clearest way 
of proving that this is not the case is the fact that the celestial pole is 
always in the same place. In fact, this was well known from way before the time 
of Kopernik, since navigation is based upon it.

      As for the angle between the pole star and the World at six-monthly 
intervals, this is indeed extremely small, but is a parallax issue, rather than 
a rotation axis issue.
