After more than a decade of use, not much grease left on the rotating bearings in both Dec and RA! Put on a thin film of AeroShell 33. Good to get that tended to.

Now for the worm and wheel. Again, are there detailed instructions anywhere? I see re-greasing guides for other mounts on the support site, but not for the Mach1GTO?

thanks, Keith
