Re: RAPAS on Mach2

Well, this appears to be the trade-off for having through the mount cabling.   I hadn't realized the situation before.  Having the counterweights as high on the shaft as possible is the preferred position.  Forgetting to remove the RAPAS and then having the dec axis head crash into the RAPAS when doing a meridian flip could ruin your day(night).
