Yes it is bad, scoped the output and nothing.

The specs for the encoder are; 256 cpr with .091" (2.3mm) shaft size.
This is the most common reason for motor "run on". Any small voltage spike and the encoders fail. I have purchased used motors for much less than the new Celestron price. Celestron use to sell the motors for $29, but that was was a while ago. They raised the price from $29 to $132 over night about 2 years ago with no explanation.

I should have it by Friday, maybe even tomorrow so I will get it in right away. Surface mount so not going to be an easy swap
