Quote:I can wiggle the mount a noticeable amount by grabbing the top dovetail and wiggling back and forth
Quote:Guys, thanks for the continued comments.I can say definitely YES, it is play in RA only, and it certainly seems to be rotating around the RA axis. By moving the top dovetail back and forth, the movement in the bottom of the CW shaft is 1-3mm (eyeballing this).Charlie, your point is taken though regarding just letting it go. I must admit I have an MO of obsessing with new hobbies about things that are potentially wrong (as much as I hate that)... I probably just need to step back and leave it until it presents itself as a problem. I've just been struggling with erratic autoguide results (still very new) and I'm trying to figure out why.Thanks for all the inputs, I will also check the above mentioned nuts/screws and make sure things are snug.Thanks for the input.
