The red line shows the distance between the string and the cam. The cam shouldn't be further from the string than it is now. The red line is hard to see but its below my bottom whisker.

Here is a better pic of mine. It is a little less than a 1/4" between sting and cam. Yours is a little wider but not bad. After that string settles in a bit it should be on the mark.

Basically, with single cams you look for the string to come off the cam in a straight line. From what I can see both good pics in here show both bows set very good.

One thing you can adjust is idler lean, have you checked that? You can adjust it by twisting/untwisting either side of the yoke; the cable guard side needs to be shorter.

Check out this thread on AT; the basic idea is to adjust the yoke to get the best arrow flight, rather than just eyeballing or measuring it.
