The stepper motors will hit resonant points if the belt tension is set too high. If you send me an e-mail I will walk you thru setting the belt tension so it doesn't do that.
As per my video link above I have just noticed a vibration and noise
issue from the RA axis. It only does it when going from the west side to
the east side of the mount. Also, the Go-To speed must be at 1000 or
1800. Whats up???
BTW - here is the description on my YouTube page for this video:
Tonight, May 22 - 2021 I noticed a vibration from my Astro-Physics Mach2
mount at the 1000 and 1800 Go-To rates coming from the RA axis. It only
occurs when going from the west side of the mount to the east side.
Clip 2 is @ 1800 WEST SIDE to park 3
Clip 3 is @ 1800 EAST SIDE to park 3
Clip 4 is @ 600 WEST SIDE to park 3
Clip 5 is @ 1000 WEST SIDE to park 3
Clip 6 is @ 1800 WEST SIDE to park 3
Clip 7 is @ 600 WEST SIDE to park 3
Clip 8 is @ 1000 WEST SIDE to park 3
The rest of the video is documented verbally by me.
