Calibration of AZ-EL

How are most of you calibrating your Az/El? With a compass and level? I have
heard of putting a solar cell at the end of a 2 or 3 foot tube mounted to
the boom, then aligning for peak voltage when facing the sun. Once this is
done, the local time and position are entered into a computer program. This
sounds like a good method to me. Any others?
