I see this statement in the installation instructions:
"It doesn’t make any difference where the magnetic switch is located on the dome, but it is recommended to place the dome magnet on the south side of the dome when it is in parked position for domes installed in northern hemisphere, and placed on north side on domes in southern hemisphere."
Does anybody know what this recommendation is based on?
Reason for asking:
I have a set of cable conduits that terminate into a bay on the North-East side of my observatory. I would like to place the Dome Rotation Kit rotator, as well as the charger for the Shutter Motor Kit near it to avoid long unsightly cables. Is this possible? And does the magnet placement affect this at all?
