Pictured is the current set up , with 11 lnbs. This is only temporary as its coming down to go on a motor soon. It turns out that the screw mountings that hold the narrown invertos are not up to much. The 8mm nut which sits in a freefloating piece of plastic mounted on the rear of the lnb isnt really up to it. Its far too easy to overfasten them, the plastics on the thin side. A metal former would have been better. There is too much stress on the middle lnb when you have 2 or 3 either side, it simply cant hold it. It was always my plan to put support bars left and right but seeing as this has took me weeks of setting up and i'm still not happy, i've decided to go down the motorized route. No sight issues here - i can get 53E easily to 30W no problem.
