oops oops

Was researching the Vixen MT-1 drive motor. Downloaded the special instructions for my Celestron (nah, Vixen) German Equatorial Mount, the "Super Polaris" (SP) mount. The showed how to dismantle the mount and add the motor for both the right ascension (RA) and declination (Decl.) axes.

When suddenly I noticed that their axis terms and mine are reversed!

Holy crap. Have I been using the opposite terms this whole time?!
