New G11 RA and DEC clutch knob upgrade question
      #5383743 - 08/23/12 11:27 PM

Hello all,
I finally got the upgrade accessories for my G11. I got the RA and DEC clutch knobs, but haven't actually upgraded those! The reason being, when I unscrewed the existing RA and DEC clutch knobs, I noticed that they were greased. I am not sure if I need to grease the upgrade parts - I am guessing I have to. If so, what grease should I be using?

All help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Dhaval

Just a dab on the threads. I use White Lithium Grease on mine.
