I received my SkyGuider Pro with iPolar last Friday. It's been cloudy over the weekend, so I didn't have much chance putting the mount in action.
Finally the clouds parted this evening, so I set up the mount polar aligned, pointed my scope to Mirach. Took a few 10~30 secs subs hoping to see
reasonably rounded stars but, to my dismay, found star trails.
Now it could be that my PA is not perfect, however, I suspect the mount's RA motor is not slewing. I am saying this because the mount has two buttons
that allow you to fast slew the RA axis. But when I press either of the buttons, nothing happens. I can't hear the motor moving. I have also tried motor
calibration, following this post, which slews RA clockwise and counterclockwise for 8mins each. The mount did not slew at all.
Before I send the mount back, is there anything I might have missed? I would appreciate your thoughts/suggestions/comments. Thank you!
