This is my new Skywatcher 127 5" Mak and have been having problems mounting this on my new Skywatcher AZ GOTO mount and as you can see the SKYWATCHER logo is not in the position it should be which is on the middle on the side of the tube and also 9x5

Did you get this sorted?

I have (had) the same problem - the scope is made for an EQ mount not a GOTO, hence the dovetail is in the wrong position for the finder...

I considered tube rings, but they are expensive for this size 'scope, so I got a Universal mounting plate and a mounting shoe for a finder and attached them in the 'normal' finder position when the scope is on the mount - works great now!
