I've got a 24" dish with linear LNBF pointed at IA-5 (Telstar 5). I'd like
to hang another DSS LNBF on the arm to pick up Dishnetwork at the 110 slot.
It is 13 degrees from the IA-5. Am I correct that I hang it 13 offset from
the centerline of the dish? Will this work?

More or less, yes. Remember that the dish is a mirror, so the DSS LNBF goes
east of the FSS one. You may need to experiment for the best placement.
