To anyone using the new Ioptron ZEQ25 mount. Do you find that the polar scope led units burn out prematurely? I had two burn out.

Mines still fine, make sure your not overvolting the mount as I suspect the led is not fed from conditioned power, as in connected straight from the switch.

I never had an issue. Though I will say the connection to the scope is a little loose.

I will add that it is the best polar scope I have ever used.

No LED problems here.
I have seen even a slightly higher voltage that is still well within spec cause drive error reports.
