Hi guys,

 

I have an EQ3 Go-To mount. Recently I have started to hear a clicking/knocking noise whilst the mount is tracking a target. When I look through the eyepiece, the image moves with the vibration from this clicking/knocking. It sounds like something in the gears of the motors is causing this. I balance the scope on all axis during every setup so I do not think it is anything to do with this, but I might be wrong!

 

Can anyone guide me on what to do?

 

Many thanks!
