I used a digital amp meter and the slightest change in CW or OTA
weight changed the amp reading. Read my comment in "Switched Power"
post, luckily I have access to some great electrical advise.

the positive post of the multimeter to the positive post on mymarine battery, and the
negative post on the multimeter to the positive wire going intothe mount's power cord.
It worked fine and registered about 700 ma when not tracking. Doesthat seem about
50 ma and not enough to observe accurately. Even when Iintentionally imbalanced the
mount and slewed at 600x, the movement of the needle was less than100 ma and not
sufficient to make an accurate observation. Does that seem right?_____________________________________________________________________
