I recently bought IOptron Skyguider Pro and used it for a few times with good results. Now I noticed that that the RA clutch doesn't fully lock in place even after I tried to lock it in really hard. It's not completely broken -- it is somewhat stable and can hold a balanced load, but if I try to rotate it with some force or attached a heavy load on one end it still moves. This is a short video demonstrating this (https://youtu.be/tfX1C8lqgkY)
I've seen this post but not sure if it's the same issue. As a beginner, I wonder what's the desired behavior for the RA clutch? Is it designed to not move at all once it's locked in, or it is still supposed to move a bit with some heavy force applied? If it is designed to not move at all, how does it actually move to track the stars?
Really appreciate any help!
