Hi, i'm confused :)

I want to install my motor kit next weekend.

Do I need to set the motor pointing to magnetic south or real south? and then the dish pointing to 1 West??
And would that be the motor's 0 position?

Thanks

P.S i'm in London area's.

Start from 'Starting the install'

Generally, set the mount and pole up then you want the 0 point of the motor facing Magnetic South, the 1deg West is to pick up Thor to give you a reference point.

Any problems come back and ask :-)
