Quote:If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
“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:I have noticed that the beginning of slew and end of slew gravelly growl is a bit more pronounced with a weak power supply. You might want to try a beefier battery or AC to reduce the phenomenon somewhat.
Quote:I just got my new SkyWatcher NEQ6 Pro mount and I’m very disappointed with the rattling noise it makes when starting and stopping slews. This occurs on both the RA and DEC axis. Although the mount seems to perform well, the noise is very annoying.
