Adjusting the CGE Pro for Latitudes Higher Than 42 Degrees

As shipped from the factory, the CGE Pro mount will only adjust to a latitude of about 42 degrees.  If you live at a latitude higher than 42 degrees you will need to change the orientation of the threaded plate the latitude adjustment bolt threads through.  Remove the scope and counterweights and point the RA axis upwards.  Remove the four bolts holding the two blocks the threaded plate is mounted on and move the assembly down to the four lower holes.  Put the four bolts back in and tighten everything down.
