Out of curiosity, does anyone know how the clamps on a Vixen GPD work? Some kind of friction coupling, I guess? Asking because once in a while I tend to forget releasing one of the clamps before attempting to manually slew the mount, thus putting unnecessary stress on the system until I notice the mistake. Just happend yesterday, and I keep asking myself how much bad I am doing to my equipment in such a case.
GPD clamp mechanics?
