Re: Mach2 with CP five jiggling while tracking
I have the same issue.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I found if I slightly imbalance the RA (move counterweights down) the problem is mitigated. Also fwiw I’m using a 12” SCT which I think is just at the limit of the Mach2.
However, I discovered this back in late September and have only had the mount out for a short session in October.
During the October session I was trying to image the moon. I did a goto to the moon, then noticed on the live video the moon flopping back and forth. I had the patio lights on and could see the RA oscillating a few degrees. I tried to capture this on a smartphone video but it’s not noticeable.
I’ll upload a video of the moon flopping when I find it.
(I had some conversation with Roland on this but I haven’t followed up on my part as I wanted to gather more info.)
