I have a 3m (10ft) mesh dish with a 24inch actuator. Should this be able to rotate a full 180 degrees(ie. horizon to horizon) or is their a limit to how far the dish can move? Please help guys!

AFAIK, only about 140 degrees assuming no obstructions on the horizon. What it's tracking is an arc in the sky which disappears below the horizon at these (70/70) extremities. Not sure if that varies slightly depending on where you are in relation to the equator.
