Re: AP1200 GTO and backlash in its brass gear?
It is hard to say how the previous owner used the mount. Yes, wear can occur at different rates. We have customers doing supernova searches which require hundreds of slews nightly. Heavy, out-of-balance payloads will cause more wear. Normally, there is not a problem. It is very hard to say.
The best thing is to send the motor box to us and we can check the gears and mix and match gears for the best mesh. Repair is very quick once we have it.
