Pictures if anyone can show if possible. sorry to not know but I purchased this on cl for a great price. Im use to my flat mount on my etx60. Thank you for your help if anyone can help me... Gil....

your fork arms should be pointing to polaris (north). Your telescope should be facing what ever you want to look at, so if it is in the south, it will be facing south.
