Also,

What about RAPAS, does it need to come off?

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?

Regards
Hemant
