The last time I used the telescope for visual purpose was about 2 months ago. Haven't been using it until today because it's been raining in my area for the whole 2 months. When it got clearer last night I decided to bring my scope out and look at the moon. But suddenly the mount won't slew to the right. Both manually and tracking. Anyone can guess what's the problem here? I'm so ****!!

As a guess... Probably a bad electrical connection in the mount.

Either a wire has come out of one of the connectors, or a wire has been crimped/broken.
