Quote:Would I be able to safely replace / modify it myself at home? If so, do I open the panel that the power / cables etc attach to or would it require more elaborate disassembling of the mount. In trying to move the LED out of the way (it was too bright) I ended up with no LED light at all after I tugged at it gently with a hook made of wire.

Quote:Yes, on the Atlas EQ-G the LED is just inside the compartment behind the power and hand control panel. I'm not entirely certain what holds it in place, looks to be a glue of some sort. I just bought my Atlas EQ-G and I initially thought the LED was too bright, but I found you can decrease brightness from the hand controller. Have you thought about doing that before delving in to the challenges of modifying it?
