The image on the 1200 info page shows 20" from the base to the dec center:

The same dimension in the calc2 spreadsheet (www.astro-physics.com/tech_support/mounts/latitude-dimension-calc2.xls) shows 14 1/8 inches (item "L").



Which is correct? Or am I reading something wrong?



cheers & beers,

Hi Chris,



The dimensions shown on the AP1200 information page is for latitude 42 degrees (i.e., AP's location in Rockford, Il.). The spreadsheet requires you to input values for your location and equipment setup. For example, when I input my latitude of 32 degrees item "L" changes to 19 3/8". Hope this helps!
