I love my APZ mount, but it's acting up for the first time. Some time ago I noticed that it was loose in AZ to the point that the OTA would noticeably move whenever touched. No good. I disassembled the mount, and by tightening the black screws that hold the slo-mo controls I could take out the slack. This, however, made the slo-mo knob stiffer than I like it to be.
Yesterday I tried to find the sweet spot, it worked well initially, but then came loose again – big time: at the end of my session I did not have good traction anymore. I don't want to have to spend 180€ on another manual module, so I'll try again to fix the problem but it's a bit of a PITA and I am also afraid that disassembling and reassembling the mount repeatedly will damage it in the long run.
I've read about the very same issue once, so I know it can happen to this mount. Any APZ user having advice on how to fix the problem and/or a reliable way to find the sweet spot while the mount is still disassembled?
Thx in advance!
