You did a great job of the stripping the paint off your pedestal posts! They definitely look quite ready for priming. Just get them primed quick. You already know how bad that humidity is there.
I look forward to your next step.

I am crossing my fingers that you can get your EQ mount project completed during those days you have off. We are all looking forward to seeing the end results of your efforts.

I'm curious about the details of your declination brake/slo-mo. I have wondered about getting some gears for manual slo-mo controls made from nylon or delrin disks that could serve as both clutch and manual slo-mo.
Any rate, best of luck and many of us will be excited to see the results.

I have considered adding some gravel or pebbles to the inside of each pedestal to help damp vibration some more. This will make each assembly heavier, but I will be adding wheels to each for easier movement .
For declination axis slo mo, I went with a half nylon plate two sandwiched pieces with an aluminum bar that fit over and accross the dec axis from the outside with two screws on opposite sides long enough to fit through the dec assembly plate for tightening down. This unit is shown in the pic of the disassembled mount , and works well for my needs No slo mo for the RA axis, the drive's friction clutch works for that. Clear Skies, G:cool:
