Atlas Motor failure. HELP!
Posted 15 March 2009 - 06:55 PM
I took my atlas out for a normal night of astrophotography.
i did everything the same. however when the mount started to slew i heard a click. and it didnt even start to slew. I tried to do it manually but still the mount wouldnt slew. I turned it on and off only to find the same results. If i turn on the handset and try to just slew the scope without an alignment the motors will click for a split second. then they will stop and the handset light will blink. After this the blink the motors wont respond at all to the handsets commands.
Please Help me

Hahaha thats exactly what i did. I used the wrong power cable. I was upset because i thought my mount was broken. I was relieved to find out it was just a stupid mistake.
Although i wish i could have gotten a nice image tonight
