A couple nights ago I ran into a lot of futility and pain attempting my 1st use of the SkyGuider Pro.
I could not unlock the clutch. After clamping my finger in the tripod vise the pain and frustration had me rotating the declination bracket independent of the clutch wheel.
I finally removed the declination bracket and was able to span a couple spokes of the clutch wheel with pliers to get it loose.
In putting this back together I am able to tighten the clutch and the declination arm is tight in the clockwise direction. The only thing I worry about is that I don't remember the declination arm being fairly loose in the counter clockwise direction. It can be kind of tight, but takes very little to push it loose in the counter clockwise direction.
I just want to be sure that I didn't inadvertantly break something.
For sanity sake could someone help me determine whether the SkyGuider is still OK?
