Anyone successfully install the celestron auto focuser on an edgehd 1100? I installed mine this morning but it appears to be binding somewhere and will not turn. I'm at work now so I can't fidget with it again til later.

I just wonder if I have the mounting plate on backwards?

Check if the screws are tight enough. Perhaps it's not binding but on the contrary, that the motor is not turning the focus rod.

Actually I loosened the 2 screws and now it appears to be working. Kinda weird but it works.
