For a motorized dish I would advice to do it in the old proper way and use a
lnb with separate polarizer. Turning your dish extreme to east or west will
need some fine adjustemnt of skew and can be done only with a polarizer.
Also to play around with ciruclar signals (even if your feed is linear) the
adjustement could do some good.
