    Sure. This is a picture I found on SatGuys years ago.
    It is their Dish 500 (gets 110 & 119, I guess)
    No idea what they use today.
    Maybe they use a wing dish for 129/HD ...?

    I like to put it simply as "Stand behind the dish and drive it like the steering wheel on a car! If the satellite is to the right, turn right."

    If there are TWO satellites, then you have to know where the centerline between them is, if that centerline is to the left of true south, then you have to steer left.

    That's a cool dish setup. Reminds me of some of the strategies implemented to pull in Hispasat and other extreme sats (when you run out of mechanical elevation adjustment on the dish).
