Re: losmandy G11 gemini 2 mount question ! new [Re: Napersky]

Hello all, I think I posted an update on a different thread but it turns out the problem was a bad gear box. after disassembling the entire drive and running the motors and gear box off the mount I found the sound I was hearing was coming from the gear box. I must say losmandy shipped me a new gear box and in two days and I have had the mount out at least 5-6 times now and the tracking and overall performance of the mount is quite good! ihave been waiting for oag and loadstar but I have managed toget 1.5 to 2.0 minute subs w/ dslr with round stars. and am very happy. it sems too carry my 11" hd very well and am now looking to delve into the world of ccd , guiding and possibly hyperstar. thanks for all your input. just needed to roll up my sleeves and dig into this one for an answer. clear skies
