Re: Shipping AP-1600 RA axis

We normally ship the RA set to 0 longitude. You can set the clutches to be loose or just finger tight. No harm will be done to the worms.

Subject: [ap-gto] Shipping AP-1600 RA axis

Hello all,

I need to pack my AP1600 for shipping. I have the original boxes. I have a question about packing RA assembly for shipping. What is the latitude of the mount set to for shipping? Also, should the locking knobs for RA adjustment be tightened or loosened for shipping?

Also, what about the clutch on RA/DEC - engaged or loose?

Appreciate any help on this topic?
