resized plates

I resized the bottom plates, the altitude-azimuth plates. Initially, I had made them 15 cm square. Dunno why, just seemed like it was enough. But now I've made them match the size of the existing barn door plates, 16.5 cm wide.

As I suspected, this allows for clearance of the altitude screw in the current position. This will mean I have to move the motor. But then I had to do that with the 15 cm plates.
