today I tried almost everything that's possible with the handcontroller.
First I've checked the voltage of every little wire of the main connector of the dec board.
Everything was ok. The dec motor reacted immediatly at every command with the arrow keys.
Calibrating home, calibrating sensors in Alt/az mode, then polar alignment.....without any problem .
Dec guiding north only: no tracking. Dec guiding north and south: no tracking.
Next step: reset to factory settings. and everything I've done before. No tracking.
Then it has to be the encoder?I've seen a lot of different pics of the dec motor on internet but I don't see any encoder wheel at the pics. Is it located on the left side in that thin part close to the gears ?
And if so, what can I do?
