    Turns out I have been pointing my dish and motor to high

    I had it set to 54 as I read some where you set it to your lat
    But that looked to high so I moved it down

    But seems it meant to be in the mid 30 if I remember right

    You go by the latitude scale so if its 54
    Your polar elevation should be 35.4
    Declination offset 7.0 ignor the elevation scale on the motor

    So how do you know the scale

    this motor came with nothing and I’m not sure what the sky dish is in

    New motor and dish should be here soon enough
    They better have paper work

    It should have elevation and latitude scale with setting instructions if your
    Latitude is 54.6 line the two arrows up
    Just of 55 tried to upload picture of my
    Motor but wouldn't load

    motor here too

    tested it on the box and it work

    but ...

    when your on the box and you go to a different sat, it doesnt line up with numbers on the motor
    and the one i went for has a wee lcd screen on it and you can go move the dish manually to get it spot on
