Worm gear adjustment on Atlas Pro new
      #6155917 - 10/24/13 04:44 PM

I have a new Atlas Pro mount and I detect a small amount of backlash in the Dec axis and would like to try making a small adjustment to it. Can someone point me to any documentation for making such an adjustment? BTW, the belts are both tight so that's not the issue -- I can feel a little notching when I manually apply a twisting/torque on the axis one way then the other.

The process is identical with the process used for the Atlas.
