Hi everyone, this is a sad asking for help. Last month I buy a Meade Lx85 mount. Happy to finally have a equatorial mount I open the box. Beautiful equipment. After checking everything I assembly the unit. Them, didn't power on. After checking power supply and plug connector I encounter that a was a defective plug. Solved that part, the mount started with the audiostar hand control. The mount was advertised with out polar scope. Well, put in a corner of my house and ordered s polar scope. Two weeks later, yesterday, arrived. In short, the declination axe is working no good. When start to turn in some point seems like is tired, the sound change like slow. And in some point try to stop. My ota Is a 90mm Aquila. And I used a 2 pound weight to balance. I take the ota and the counterweight out and by hand control turn the declination, and after few seconds go slow and like something is prevented it to turn. I do manually and turn, but also, after cuarter of turn become a bit difficult. This was de second time I turned on. First time was okay, nothing out of normal happen that day, but now this. I know, send it back, ok, I am on a small island, Bonaire, shipping was up $300, I buy this for Adorama, eBay, Meade only offer warranty to the first person. So this is the Matt, send it back if they accept will be $400, and bring it $350, no way for me. I don't have that money. So, here I am, asking for help.
