I have the Celestron Nexstar 6SE, about 2 months old, and have what to me seems like a bunch of play in the alt gears, mainly in the forward direction. I can run the arm to level with the arrows on top of the arm aligned. From there I can tilt the scope forward enough to separate those arrows by about 1/4-inch before it encounters any resistance. I can't move the arm to the rear much at all before it contacts a gear face. I have read the backlash adjustments but am not sure if I should do that or if that is not the4 right adjustment. I spent years building blowers and blower drives for my drag cars and just can't imagine an electronic backlash adjustment fixing this, but I know I can be wrong so came here to ask!
