Quote:Thank you very much guys, you have been most helpfull and gave me much usefull information!I have bought a laboratory linear power supply too, it does reduce the current running on the mount chassis but it won't make it vanish.Ed, thank you too! I will certainly check the yahoo group for more info.Do you think this kind of power leakage could be harmfull for the electronics?With some friends here we run a small test on 3 NEQ6 mounts and another AZEQ6 and we surprisingly found out that on all of them there was current on the chassis...That makes me think what iluxo said about the negative and the chasis..Could it be standart for Skywatcher mounts?PS.I'm most definatelly thinking on sending the mount for a check under warranty..the only downside is that it takes up to 3 months to come back to me

Quote:No no, non need to get in panic, the mount is performing admirably just like the NEQ6s of my friends.This is obviously current with almost non amperage, otherwise i would be in company of angels by now and i guess it is the same thing with the nEQ6.
Quote:Cliff,Any AC to DC adapter? If the mount will only work with DC from a battery and not an AC to DC adapter I'd call that a problem with the mount.Mike
