What do the instructions for the polar mount ask for, is it degrees in elevation or latitude?

There isn't any just assembly instructions for the bracket and there is nothing on there about how to setup the angles

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Look I'm going out just now but have a read here and look at the pictures it may help you a bit to understand the geometry click here
First and foremost you need to set up the top of the arc on 1 degree West as that is you nearest due south sat.

@foam, m8, the easies way to set up a motorize dish, is to align it to
thor, as its the highest sat on the arch, once done, and as long as your pole is plumb correctly, you should have any problems geting the other sats.

good luck.

regards.

As Dago says, you must have your pole absolutely vertical all round.
