    mesu 200 ra

    Hi guys The mesu seems ok now, all I did was slew it from east to west a few times and now the motor is rotating fine. Lucas told me that there shouldn't be anything thing to worry about and asked me if it is slipping, I don't think so but how can I tell specially if it's only a small amount, anyway things seem to be ok for now and it's guiding ok. best regards Rick

    mesu 200 ra

    I had the the Mesu 200. For a few years now, I noticed that when I turn the RA axis by hand the motor does not rotate even if I turn it slowly, but when I switch it on everything seems to be ok. I was just wondering if this normal or is it a problem? regards Rick
