Can someone give me a clue what is going on with my EdgeHD 800?

My choices are set up on grass and see nothing, or set up in the court at the end of my driveway.  I did discover that forgetting the vibration isolator pucks makes a big difference!  Things wiggled all over the night I forgot to use them!

For those who wonder how, Arizona ground is absolutely hard and transmits vibration well - no moisture or soil to damp vibrations down.

Well, now I know.

My thanks - sincere thanks - to all of you who had ideas and tips and tests. I appreciate all your input. This was the weirdest telescope issue I have ever literally seen. Thankfully solved.

Book 'em, Dano.


AZ ground is not that hard. The surface of a neutrino star is 300 billion times harder than steel. That's hard.
