Re: Mach1GTO rotating Azimuth question

John Gaul


Thanks for posting your experience. I have exactly the same "squelch" thing with my 2011 Mach1 - you describe it well. I saw the screws, but didn't try tightening them up, for fear of straining something. Now I might try it some time, gently.

Best regards

Howard, Roland, or anyone at AP, I was wondering if you could comment on my
post? Thanks.

I noticed that there was some "slop" after reassembling my mount on my
permenant pier when I would push/pull on the counterweight bar lighly when the
scope was in Park 1 position. I could hear something that sounded like grease
sticking and unsticking if that makes sense, and could see the rotating azimuth
moving vertically and seemed a bit loose under the mount. I noticed that there
were two small allen screws on the east and west side, and I tightened them and
that seemed to fix the issue. There are no instructions for that (at least that
I could find), so was that the correct thing to do? If so, is there anything I
need to know as to how tight, etc., to turn these small allen screws? Is there a
third under the adjuster knob assembly that I should adjust as well(I couldn't
see one).
