Dave,

Running "fake" alignments indoors is a great way to exercise the mount and check out problems, it's warmer, brighter and there are usually more refreshments at hand.




Not really sure why I never thought of that!

If it still plays up after investigating cable issues, I reckon if you took it to your local astro shop (hopefully you have one) a side by side comparison with a new mount/HC should diagnose the problem... Fox
