CGE Pro Declination "Play" Fixed
Posted 26 January 2011 - 06:54 AM
stars look round to me in the M27 image.this was also before the DEC play was removed right?...........
It would make the mount feel more solid if there was no play yes... but I am not convinced that it affects the performance of the mount in any way with the play being there.....after all I have to physically rock the front of my OTA to get the play to show up (maybe 2mm of rocking motion evident)
sure would be great though if it just took the tightening of those 2 nuts to eradicate it,......but does not work for me...or for others who have a similar problem

Since the encoder that tracks the position of the declination axis registers movement due to play just as it would due to the movement of the gears, it doesn't seem as though the issue affects GOTO performance or polar alignment. Long focal length tracking near the meridian at high declinations would probably be somewhat iffy though.
