I recently picked up a second hand Orion Skyview Pro mount that had the GOTO kit installed.
Well - it had the goto kit miss-installed, and they had fried the Dec drive motor. I've taken it apart, tried to adjust, reinstall, but to no avail.
So - I need a replacement motor - everything else in the kit works (Synscan controller version).
Orion's policy is to only sell replacement parts to original owners. I'm not starting this to discuss Orion or their policies - just stating why I need help.
So - does anybody known a source, OEM or distributor, for one of these motors?
By the way - I would think that building a database of manufacturer replacement parts for Orion mounts and components would be worth its weight in gold...
