The mount will not stall at 12 volts. It has the same capability as it has at 24 volts. except it won't slew as fast.

the part in your previous post about "stalls and/or resonance situations" got me thinking that I should run the mount at 24 volts instead of the 13.6 volts that I have the power supply set to. Power efficiency is not really a concern while the mains are on and the standby battery is a large capacity battery which would actually run my AP900, camera, laptop, etc. for two nights. So I can afford to be inefficient with an inverter if it means that I am avoiding the possibility of stalls and/or resonance situations.
