Try it with a battery. If it works OK on the battery than just connect the 1.5 amp power supply to the battery and keep the battery connected to the mount. The mount doesn't need 1.5 amps constantly, so the 1.5 amp supply will keep the battery charged.

Thanks for all the suggestions
I found a 12V power supply @7A so now I have to wait for a clear night to test it out but at least on the bench it’s working correctly
