The right and wrong of camera orientaion.


Can all you astro imagers give me your feedback in the right or wrong camera orientation relative to scope and mount?

Is there a "proper" way?

I ask because I am struggling to position my filter wheel and guide cam in positions that wont hit the pier if I run my camera with it's longest edge parallel to the ground in the home position. If I rotate the filter wheel and guide cam to observe the same orientation as the camera, then I cannot stop the prism from really screwing with one edge of my image.

Would it really matter the my long edge is parallel to the ground or the short edge?

Not explained well, might do some mud maps.
