Mounting Orientation

Must the NUC be mounted with the arrow up?

 

I want to mount my NUC11i5TNK on my telescope frame.  During the evening, the telescope will be slowly changing orientation as it follows a star's movement.  The UP arrow on the NUC will never point straight up and the NUC will never lay horizontal.

As far I know, there is now any UP arrow showing the mounting orientation of the NUC and any requirement for NUC orientation so, your NUC can freely rotate with the telescope. The only arrow I know, is the FRONT arrow on the NUC base, showing the mounting direction of the base in relation to the case (it is pointing in to NUC front).

The UP arrow is actually on the mounting bracket and I think it's due to the slotted holes for the small screws that attach it to the NUC.  You are right.  Orientation is not an operational issue.

You are also right. This is orientation of the mounting bracket holes. Take care that the NUC will not slip out from the bracket when the telescope rotates.
