I have an SVP mount that I use with Shoestring GPUSB and PHD for AP. It has been disassembled and well lubed and adjusted. I have had some guiding problems and am wondering if my sticking problem is related:
The mount feels free without any noticeable binding and acceptable backlash and balances well. But after using it for a minute, if I release the clutch and turn the RA knob I get resistance (a few grams), then it breaks free.
Any ideas of where it might be sticking?
