Quote:This is my first scope bought about 2 years ago.Right after assembly we noticed that the vertical motor was temperamental past the ~50-55 degree mark where the motor would not move the scope upward.Sorry, quoted the wrong person. It is a mount problem. The clutch was weak in mine when I first got it. If it within the first year if purchase, Orion will replace the bad motor. You just need to call them. It's a cluch problem.Mark We learned to live with it, making sure our goto operations and alignment stars werent too high up, but the other day it flat out refused to move the scope up from park position.The motor seems to be working just fine without the scope mounted on top of it.Wondering if any of you with the same mount have had this issue and how you resolved it.Thanks-Sharon
