With a 24" Traditional Motorised Jack type actuator on a 1.2 Mtr dish, how much sweep??? (@ a loss for the correct technical term here) will that give me?

Or should I just Get a H-H whiz bit & stop messing about ?

I was thinking of maybe a Stab HH120 motor?
Or ..... undecided manufacturers 24" actuator.......

:D

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Depends on the distance away from the central pivot

24" at the extremes (with extenders), will cover the horizon

I use a 36" on a 1.8 and get horizon coverage

Which is the better job?

I didn't realise 36" jobbies were available :cool:

I really want a good Solid reliable installation......... Wandering around the roof isn't my favorite pastime :p
