Congratulations, that works really well! I see you now have the mount plate pointing up? I was wondering if you were able to find a sitech configuration for your hemisphere.

The mount is facing its final point to the west but starts upside down from the east. haven't dug up anymore info on it or contacted sitech/lucas yet, it will be on my list to do soon.
