Hi guys,

I wonder if anyone can help me. I have a metronic motor (ref 450908) but I am unsure at what angle to set the motor elevation. The latitude for Croydon where I am located is 51 degrees however the badly translated manual says to set it to 33.7 degrees. Once I have this sorted it will be one less variable to adjust and I think I will be much closer to tracking the arc properly.

The manual can be found here

Thanks in advance
Dom

Yes, adjust the motor to 33.7 and you should be spot on. :)

Being a French company I see why they use 13east as their South satellite!
One weird quote on their web site, does anybody know what a TV profane is ?:-doh! "
"> Metronic : Now more than 500 products for TV profanes, regular viewers, or TV addicts. "
