I have a new CGX-L mount, which I've used about 8 times. Started it up last night and attempted an alignment, the Dec motor was clearly malfunctioning. Since the first use, the Dec motor has always been much louder than the RA. However, it appeared to work and I really didn't have a frame of reference so I didn't think too much about it.
1) During an attempted alignment, the Dec motor was making unusual noises and it would repeatedly start/stop. Nothing like any previous alignments.
2) Moving the mount with the StarSense controller was malfunctioning as well. Any Dec movements result in start/stop while keeping the button pressed on the controller. It would also continue to do this, after releasing the button until another button was pressed or the mount turned off.
Using the Celestron 12V 5A power source, so I'm assuming it's nothing to do with amperage. I also had done a CFM firmware update, prior to the first use. I created a ticket with Celestron support but it would not allow me to upload the videos.
Anyone else with similar problems? I've seen a lot of reports of issues with the RA motor but not the Dec.
