Maybe slightly. Each degree of latitude is approximately 69 miles. Here is a chart of modified declination angles for reference.

thanks bill: its going to be close as is but maybe a slight adjustment down from where it is would tweak it as i see it.

If I was you and it is only 56 miles I wouldn’t Change it, unless you going to or coming from a Mountain area.

If using a prime focus polar mount go to http://www.dishpointer.com; use your address and under All Satellites use: True North / True South.

The bottom of the page will give you all the info you need.

However, that website only gives the 'traditional' motor angles.

The 'modified motor angles' as in the post by @bill1 are much better, to start with.
(Except, of course, the declination offset angle in that chart, for latitude 65 degrees.)

BTW.
As you can see, it's not the declination offset angle that changes much while moving to another latitude, it's the axis elevation that changes mainly.

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
