The motor for my nexdome rotation doesnt have a home sensor. The pic on the directions shows the home sensor mounted on top of the box, mine has nothing. I have a magnetic sensor so if they have changed something I didnt get the memo. Any idea with this?

My Exploradome didn't come with instructions that matched the hardware either.  You have to improvise a bit.

 

Since you have the magnetic sensor, mount the magnet on the dome (I used glue) and the sensor on a stick wherever it will reach within range of the magnet.
