“I am the only person to ever ace a 1951 USAF resolution test. My 'to observe' list says 'done'. I do not use charts or atlases when I starhop; men do not use maps. One of my sketches won an SBIG deep sky imaging contest. I am the life of star parties I have never attended. I never say anything looks like a faint fuzzy - not even a faint fuzzy. Pilots aim green laser pointers at me. Don Pensack proofreads my CN forum posts.” - The Most Interesting Astronomer in the Universe

Quote:Jim, no counterweight. It does the same thing manually. I've adjusted the slew rate from 4-9. Now it will "sometimes" work. I was able to move in RA maybe 30 degrees then back again, but then I tried moving in both axes at the same time and it stopped dead. When doing the alignment though it doesn't move at all in RA.I'll mess around a bit more. Thanks everyone!
