(use WXtrack of
your favourite site to compare the pointing directions from your own
location).
For the initial first orientation, I've found that using Google Maps' satellite view can
be very helpful. Get the correct bearing for the satellite and point from your
antenna's position in that direction. Find an object on the line that you can easily
identify from the antenna's mounting point.

Sometimes, it is easier to use a 90° angle, derived from the satellite's bearing. You
can adjust the outer borderline of your dish to that auxiliary fix point.

Of course, this is not the best technique if the dish is mounted where no one can
firmly stand.

As a last step, always optimize the LNB's skew angle. That will work wonders on
youd dB reading.

Cheers,
U.
