CGE... RA go home!
Posted 09 September 2012 - 08:54 PM
OK, I took advantage of the bad weather and replaced my RA switches. The new switches tested ok, but when I put everything together on the pier with the C14, it doesn't seem to want to find the home position. it slews all the way west and I have to abort before it runs into the pier.
The tube seems balanced ok. So does anyone have any idea why it might be doing this? It sounds like the switch isn't engaging, but I don't know why it wouldn't.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I'll double check everything tonight. The strange thing is, I powered up the mount and did a pretend start up with no scope and everything worked fine. I'm wondering if, under load, the switches are being closed. I might have to back them off or something.
