It would have helped if Amundsen (not Amunsden) had arrived at the South Pole when it was not 24 hours of daylight for the 6 month summer period (which is impossible to explain on any other model), then he could have seen that the South Celestial Pole was perfectly 90 degrees above him. It was left to times when more accurate measurements could be made to adjust the actual south pole to its current position, but the first ones there did a remarkable job with the tools they had.

They did nothing. Also today, there is no compass measurement shows that point as a poll. Compass is still showing anywhere else  as  south at there point. So Amunsden and his team were a liar, and the others too.

I'm asking that, if that point is a pole, where is the compass experiment? Why isin't there at least one compass measurement at there. Shame on you, because of you join to the same lie!
You are the liar here.
A magnetic compass will point roughly  to the magnetic south pole, not the geographic one.
Other types are capable of showing the true bearing to the south pole based upon rotation.

But like always, that is just irrelevant crap, as there are other ways to determine their location relative to the south pole, such as the motion of stars, including the sun.

Please understand you stupid ignorant spoiled brat. Amundsen did not determine that he was at the South Pole using a compass.

If you had bothered to read what has been written in
Amundsen reached the South pole on December 14, 1911.  His expedition used typical marine sextants and mercury artificial horizons (on land we use a dish of water or levelled "first surface" mirrors.  Observations of the Sun began on the 15th 1911 and were taken every hour- which could be done since at that latitude (being about a week or so before summer) the sun never set.
you would have learned that Amundsen used marine sextants and mercury artificial horizons to determine the location of the South Pole.

But, know-it-all İntikam never bothers reading what others say.

So Amunsden and his team were NOT liars.  You Mr İntikam are the shameless liar here.

Here is what Amundsen could have seen if he was at the South Pole over a 24 hour time lapse period in its nighttime.

Now try to see this anywhere else on earth, since at the North Pole there are no buildings for reference. (Hey, I smell a NASA CGI hoax reply, because reasons i.e. we can't explain this)

That's a cool picture! Thanks for finding it.

It's easy to see that this is the south pole, not the north pole. If it were the north pole we would see Polaris making a tiny, fairly bright circle at the center, but we don't. If it were the north pole we wouldn't see Sirius making the large, very bright circle near the edge, nor Canopus' bright circle about midway between Sirius and the pole, but we do.
