Busted Vixen Portamount. Parts?
Posted 15 August 2009 - 01:01 AM
Since the azimuth worm gear has a shaft sticking out of either side of it, I can use the Antares control on the other side of the shaft, but it points away from me as I use my scope, and I'd like to replace the worm gear/shaft assembly part if that part is available as a replacement part.
Anyone have experience working with Vixen on parts like this? Is this part user-replaceable? Should I just live with it and use the Antares cable on the remaining shaft facing away from me?

If nobody here has any insight into further disassembling the Portamount's head, I'm going to look into checking with the local Orion store, since Orion is now dealing Vixen. The only positions I can mount the head leave the azimuth control aiming away from me.
