I am trying to find the pivot point of this mount. Best I can figure is right on the polar finder plug. Anyone know for sure?

I don't think I'm the only one confused here. Just exactly which 'pivot' point are you looking for?

Sorry the mount pivot point. Where ra and dec cross. I figure its right on the polar scope dust cap based on my calculations. Math isnt my strongpoint which is the reason for my post :). I am using the skyshed pier height tool trying to figure out the optimum pier location.
