Re: Cables getting caught

Dean I have had a similar problem with my 1200 dec cable. I placed a piece
of tape over the knob to allow it to slip easier. Since I am imaging
remotely that is a huge concern, so far no problems. It is cool the way the
cables slip through the housing on my Mach 1.

Subject: [ap-gto] Cables getting caught

The other night the cable that connects to the DEC got gaught on the
silver knob that locks the DEC housing down. I suspect this is rare
but a concern. I did replace the black knobs and the cable was
clipped as it should be to the back of the mount.

One thought is to put a larger plastic sleeve around the cable so it is
too large to catch on the knob, because it is fatter. Another if it
would work is to put a cover over the knob. The first idea may work,
any others out there ?
