I've read loads of posts on this forum and other about setting up a motorised system using H2H mounts. I've also read that i need to point the dish to true south from my location this should be somewhere between 1w and 4w as I live in S.Wales. But...

How do I find true south? I can not find the calculation anywhere.

If you go to heavens-above.com and input your nearest town then it will give you your lat/long coordinates, from there you can decide what your most southerly sat is and use that one to set up your dish initially.
