I have some doubts about the correct use of the clutch knobs on the Mach1. Let me explain:
I have my mount located in my backyard on a semi-permanent basis (Park 3 position). When I have to take flats this is what I do:
(All this with the mount turned off)
- I release the clutch knobs and point my telescope at my LED panel.
- I tighten the clutch knobs again (I don't want any accidental movement).
- I take my flats.
- I release the clutch knobs and move the mount back to Park 3.
- I tighten the clutch knobs again.
Is this procedure okay or is it better to move the mount using my computer (or keypad)? I know I'm not going to damage anything, but I'm afraid it might affect the precise tracking or something.
