Azimuth adjustment - kick the box with your shoe - we are not talking rocket science here!

Very nice mount Barry. Loved Gleaning's. I once built the barn door for astrophotographers I saw there - little manually guided mount with threaded rod, couple of boards, piano hinge, you may remember. Too bad I don't have any pictures of it. You may remember the Edmund's books about mounts and so forth - think Sam Brown wrote them. Lots of good ideas for homemade mounts in there.

Here is my re-powder coated and hypertuned LXD75 on a permanent 9 inch concrete pier using 3/4 inch mounting bolts and a pier plate from Dan's. The peacock slate tile was left over from the kitchen remodel.
Now that is a 'sweeet' arrangement!
10 out of 10 from the powder coat to the pier....I love it.

It all sits nicely in the center of the yard. I keep the ota in the garage on a custom wall mount and simply carry it out, set it in the rings, turn it on and tell Autostar what day and time it is.
Simply amazing work you did there. Best looking LXD75 on the planet!
