Quote:As the subject states, when using BOTH the hand control and Nexremote, when I press the left arrow key (I am assuming it is the RA-East direction) the slew continues for a short while after I let up on the key.The other three directions stop pretty much instantly when I let off the direction key, but the left arrow, motion continues. If I change the rate, the amount of "carry-over" changes also, rate 8 gives lots of overshoot, rate 2 gives virtually none.I recently tore down, cleaned, and relubed the mount, but the problem still continues. I have tried to move the OTA forward/backward in the saddle, as well as changing the balance with the counterweights.....still no end.Any thoughts?Andy

I cant estimate the distance in arcminutes, what I can say is that the extra movement is close to the amount that is selected in the slew rate. When rate 9 is selected, the extra amount is close to the amount if you pressed the key. The amount lessens as the slew rate is diminished.
It feels like the key is stuck..or behaves that way. But its behavior is the same in nexremote. I reset to defaults with the hand control, do I have to do the same in nexremote also?
