Another tip- if it's not completely clear, like read a newspaper through it clear, then don't bottle! It'll eventually clear, but all the crud will fall into the bottle. I've never bottled a wine or mead that was under 6-10 months old, and I have a rhubarb wine right now in a carboy that I made in May 2008 that still isn't bottled.
If you have lees on the bottom (sediment), you can rack to another carboy to get it off the lees. I wouldn't bottle until it's completely clear, and no new lees form on the bottom after 60 days.
