Mounting my TV

Abstract

I live in an old building with brand-new looking drywall. Studs were not all on 16″ centers. My low-profile mount could only span 16″centers. Went through the trouble to make a spanning board. turns out the drywall was not in fact drywall but plaster over lath. Ended up scooting the mount 15mm to the left to grab one stud and using 8 TOGGLER anchors. Seems to hold fine.
