NIKA: Alignment and pointing model

It is recommended that the pointing session is performed at night time, at least one day after the antenna is running normal observations with good weather condition, no high wind and the antenna deicing off. We aim with this step to get the antenna and tower well stabilised in temperature

Based on the tutorial "How to run a pointing session and a pointing model parameters fit" by Juan Peñalver et al. (2008).
