 **Optimum aiming** involves both tracking the suns elevation above the horizon (zenith) and tracking the sun's east-to-west travel (azimuth). ​ Doing both can increase yield ~30% but requires frequent repositioning. **Optimum aiming** involves both tracking the suns elevation above the horizon (zenith) and tracking the sun's east-to-west travel (azimuth). ​ Doing both can increase yield ~30% but requires frequent repositioning.
  
-**Leaving panel tilt in a reasonable default** is more common and has milder yield improvments. ​ In this approach the panel is aimed at true((not magnetic)) south((in the northern hemisphere)) at a particular angle above the horizon ​depending on time of year and latitude.+**Leaving panel tilt in a reasonable default** is more common and has milder yield improvments. ​ In this approach the panel is aimed at true((not magnetic)) south((in the northern hemisphere)) at a particular angle from perpendicular((ie,​ flat panel)) ​depending on time of year and latitude.
