Just to ask. Is it normal for the motor to have like a crunching sound and hang for like 1 -2 seconds before it starts moving? I believe it is called the declination motor. It is the one that turns the telescope left and right. I didn't use to have the problem in the first 3 months of owning the scope.
I will post a video shortly of what I mean as it is hard to explain.
I may just buy the scope and some accessories and just take my current mount to school. I could probably just breakdown the mount and stow it in my car. I really like the WO 66 I am really excited about it.
Just as a side question could I split double stars with that small of a scope? I heard you can't really do it with a newt because of the obstruction.
