Field of view

What does this statement in the Starlink FAQs mean?”In early service, the required clear field of view is a 100-degree cone around the center of the dish (after tilting) with a 25 degree elevation minimum.”If I have no obstructions above 50° from the horizon am I OK? What does “after tilting” mean? What are they talking about when saying 25° elevation? Also, do I need to mount the antenna with some orientation to north?

I had that same question and nobody would answer. Got my Starlink yesterday. I set it up on my backyard sidewalk. It took about 2 minutes to align itself and start providing internet. The dish looks north and fairly high up. If it moves it is imperceptible. I'll watch it for another week or so but based on what I've seen so far I'm no longer worried about obstructions or trees. I'm near Missoula, MT.
