Having ANY kind of satellite aiming meter (even the $25 cheapies) will make it much easier to aim and peak, but there's nothing like having someone at the receiver to give you readings as well (both to make sure you're on the correct satellite, and to give you some numbers).
If you're aiming a 1000.2 - be aware that the coax connectors are not "as you would expect". Looking at from the back - the far left one should be for the middle (119), the middle one for 110, and the right one for 129.

While covered 110/129 - find 119W; slowly and by small changes in AZ/El !
So I covered both outer lnb's and now I am only seeing sat. 129. So which direction should i go now?
