Cannot lower AP1100 102 arc min

Shailesh Trivedi

I have a new pier for my AP1100AE. I have adjusted the AZ position using PEMPRO for polar alignment. I am at latitude 38.6 degrees and according to the AP1100 user manual, I need to place the Altitude adjuster bar in slot 5 (37 -47degrees centered at 42 deg.)

PEMPRO is asking me to lower the mount 102 arcmin and, even after loosening the polar axis lock knobs, I am unable to lower the mount; now with an OTA and counterweights.

How do I lower the mount? Any pointers will help, thanks.
