At the moment, I have a dish aimed at 1W. It is mounted on a paving stone at the back of the garden and I would like to move it to point at Astra 19E. In terms of inches (or centimetres for the younger generation) - how far should I move the dish to the left (looking from behind)? I believe I also have to move it up or down as well as across.
Should this satellite be easy to find with a 90cm in the north=west of England.
Thanks in advance.

Got it great thanks. Had to move dish over a bit - neighbour's conifer was blocking the way slightly before - will have to watch that!

glad you found it m8 happy veiw in

once you know the angles you find all the sats easy when you know how

thats how i find them stand behind the dish never ever used a motor
the more you move them the more easy to find because they stick in your head where they are and of course the more channels you find to veiw
happy hunting m8
