CGEM DX Clicking Sound, Antibacklash Set Above 30
Posted 01 October 2012 - 02:48 PM
To fix this issue with the RA negative, I need to increase the anti backlash to a setting above 30. However, now there is this clicking noise that occurs when the mount slews in the RA negative. The clicking causes vibrations which then causes major problems with my autoguiding. The higher the antibacklash setting the louder the clicking gets.
I have called Celestron Tech Support twice and they do not hear any clicking noise on their setup with antibacklash enabled and set to a high value. They recommend to send the mount back, but then it would take over a month to get the mount back
Has anyone dealt with this issue before?

Furthermore, you may update firmware to newer ones, as now my mount slew with a lot more fluidity, start slowly and up the speed to max, before the mount hit the motor every time I input correction (always to max speed at startup)
