AT Voyager striction

For instance, is the mount full of "synta glue" instead of proper lubricant? If so, can it be replaced? Are there other tweaks that could be made?
I read somewhere that the jerkiness may result from the design of the clutches for the slow-motion controls. I'm hoping this isn't true.

I've had my Voyager now for almost a year and the first thing I did was take it apart and regrease it. At first I used a white lithium (grease, not aerosol) which works very well, but with my 102ED is a bit too free. What I finally settled on was ordering some of the Pete's Red Synthetic grease from Scopestuff. One packet will be enough for both axes. I now find it absolutely wonderful. If you decide to go this route, just take your time with the adjustments, especially the worm gear tension. Aside from that, the only other mods I've made are loctite-ing all the screws on the tripod and adding a Vixen eyepiece tray which matches and secures the spreaders very well. Best of luck.
