I want to put up that combo instead of the T-90 that i reasently took down.
I have read here that the max arc with a 12" actuator gives only 40+40 deg ,but thats not good enough.
Is it the PM that is the problem or the mount of the actuator?

The wish is 75e-30w , as my Laminas 120cm on the Channel Master Polar mount.
An alternative is a (toy) DiSEqE motor ,but they are so sloooow.

Think a DiSEqC motor is 55/60 degrees each way, could just do it being location 18 degrees South. A longer jack and positioning may also give you a larger arc providing the PM reaches.

This is what i had from Gibertini as answer for my question:
-The Gibertini Polar Mount is able to reach 160° without any problem. 12" actuator is enough for your need.
So now i can only buy the PM and a 12" actuator and try it for my self.
