Congratulations, that is an awesome dish.
You sure you have enough room for that in your yard? [wink]
I would have that mount sandblasted and powder-coated.

I am curious what the turnbuckle on the mount is for as it looks like it is doing the same job as the threaded elevation rod.

I don't see a way to adjust the declination offset angle but it's hard to tell in the pic. That angle could be built into the mount as many of the original polar mounts were designed as such. Where the lower two brackets attach to the dish might be slotted for the declination adjustment.

The dish appears to be SMC fiberglass, sheet molded compound fiberglass. Very sturdy and holds form well. 13ft will be very heavy, use caution.

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!
