I have a Celestron CPC 1100 Edge. I am using a 12V Celestron Lithium Pro power supply.
The cord on this power supply is very short. Tonight I ran into a problem slewing in azimuth because of cord wrap. I simply did not notice how tight the cord was getting in the dark. The mount motor made a strained sound, and then completely stopped during rapid slewing.
Could this have damaged the gears or the azimuth motor?
