Re: 1600 GTO + AP portable pier vibration dampening?

Chris,
 
    I wonder if there is a motor  ”kick setting” on such dome control software, to overcome its static load. If that could be lessened, so that the drives ramp up rather than slam into motion, those small jogs may not be so disturbing.

Probably the best solution is to work on the dome azimuth rotation system to remove the rough movement and/or slow the dome down using a speed controller compatible with your azimuth motor.
