Hello everyone!

 

The front panel of the mount where iOptron SmartEQ Pro is written, heats up (not very much and not even very slightly) during usage. I use a 12V 2A AC-DC Adapter with it.

 

Is it normal? 

Will it somehow affect the mount?

 

I don't want to damage the mount.

You should be checking with iOptron on this issue. They are very responsive.
