I recently purchased a Celestron C6 Tube Assembly and a Sky-Watcher AZ5 mount, all is fine except I keep going back and forth on how to mate the tube with the Mount! The 'scope seems to be most comfortable to use with the focus knob on the bottom, as one doesn't need reach over the eyepiece to focus! However, mounted like this, the controls for the Sky-Watcher seem " wrong" with the attachment rail on left side looking "down range"! If I place the tube with the rail on the "right' side, focus knob at top, the Sky-Watcher controls are well placed , however, I now have to reach over the diagonal and eyepiece to focus! Is this just matter of personal preference, or is there a correct way? Note, I've never seen a Schmidt Cas. on a factory mount with the knob on top, always right side or bottom! Hence my question!
