That's what I figured.
I tried last night and could not get enough range in the mount to move it far enough.
Guess I'll need to raise the disk to plumb, check the readout and determine the correction factor I need to use when pointing. Unless of course you think it is a degrading el sensor that needs to be replaced.
I am not sure if my unit is still in warranty or not.
How much would aa replacement EL sensor run $$$?
Tried to physically adjust the EL sensor again last night.
I was able to adjust it enough to get the correct reading of 24 degrees with the dish plumb BUT, I had to adjust it so far, I could not remount the DISH!
Guess I will be using the "correction factor' method I described above.
Have you guys seen this type of issue before with thhe EL sensor?
