I think I am experiencing sticktion sp? in my dec
axis. I recently upgraded the scope that was mounted
on the mount and increased the load by about 20
pounds and purchased a 30 pound and 18 pound
My total load of equipment has to be somewhere
around 90 pounds or so. This is well within the load
rating. I purchased more than needed counterweights,
because I was already extended out on the counterweight
shaft and wanted to bring things in a little.
Anyways, my calibration in PHD2 in RA looks good
but in Dec it takes a long time and it does not seem to
move as fluidly as it used to. It seems like I am
getting bad calibration and there is an error message
that the calibration is not what is expected. My guiding
seems to have suffered a bit also.
I think I have it balanced, but it is hard to do
since the mount is kind of rigid.
Any ideas on how to remedy?
