Hi Folks. Quick simple question here...I have a couple cheap EQ1 Mounts which I use for small refractors for easy portability to bring out in the backyard for a few minutes of observing. What I noticed is there is no grease whatsoever on the RA worm or worm gear! I do manually rotate the RA axis sometimes when tracking an object such as the Moon or a planet.Seems crazy with metal to metal and no lube. I Wondered why. Do you think I can put a small amount of Super Lube on the worm and gear, or should I leave it alone?
