I own an LX200 12" ACE SCT with a fork mount. How do I set the mount type? The icon implies that the mount is a GEM. Or is this scope have a default setting of Alt/AZ? Am I going to need a wedge?
Found the click box for the style of mount.... glad it wasn't a snake!

If the telescope will be used to visually observe objects, an equatorial wedge may not be necessary. If you plan on taking digital photos, then either a rotator to remove field rotation, or an equatorial wedge will be required.
