Whenever I have come into large sums of money in my life, I always put half of it aside to spend on fast cars and the pursuit of loose women.
I put aside the other half to spend frivolously.

Quote:Problem solved!Thanks to all of you for your assistance. Your suggestions and encouragement pointed me in the right direction. After swapping motors and realizing that both of them were working properly when driven by either the RA or DEC output of the controller, I finally noticed that the RA setting circle was moving exactly with the arm. This made it appear that RA was stuck. When I stepped back to observe the whole mount from a distance over a period of time it was obviously working properly after all.I don't yet have a scope mounted on it so I was not able to look through an eyepiece to see that it was in fact moving. Ah well, it was good for me to learn the ins and outs of the mechanical details.
