I will be attempting to align my 75E dish and have set the Skew but want to "rough in" the elevation. Since there is not a pointer on the dish assembly for the elevation can someone tell me is it the edge of the washer on the nut, the center of the nut or?? I don`t have a protractor and I`d like to get the elevation close so I can then "rough in" the azimuth.

Did this a few weeks ago, but the dish is now about 2000miles south!

If I remeber correctly, as you look at the elevation adjustment nut, look to the left of it (i.e. the dish side) and there should be a metal edge showing through the gap that the adjustment bolt goes through. This is the reference for setting the elevation.

THANKS, that`s exactly what I`ve been looking for. My dish didn`t come with assembly instructions so I`m not sure if the pointer is installed but now I know the approximate offest for it.
