George You know you're getting on when the equipment you farmed with is showing up as suburban lawn ornaments.
Quote:Thanks for the link! I had successfully cleaned up the DEC axis, de greased/polished, etc.....and closed the mount up. A while later I decided to do the RA axis, and I took a foolish shortcut.......I was following the guide on this site, his directions were great, my following them, well not so good.The upside is both the RA and DEC are smooth as silk, only 1 axis is crippled by a 5 cent part, and a healthy dose of stupidity!Andy
