  1. sounds like the ubiquitous problem with USB leads....
  2. I also run the USB2 version in conjunction with the 1600, using the 1600's hub with filter wheel & never had a problem, but the all other connected devices are connected through dedicated USB hubs either 2 or 3... If you're brave\confident enough, it may also be worth checking how much throughput you're actually getting on the USB ports, following this (How can I view USB device bandwidth allocation in Windows 10 - Microsoft Community) will at least show you what your getting & whether there are any bottlenecks...
  3. Don't know the mount, but usually the central grub screw is what applies pressure between the gears, reducing slop\backlash. Just don't over tighten, else the axis will be difficult to move and may bind.
  4. There are motorised DOB mounts, but for DOB's, and Fork mounts, both axes motors must be driven, to counteract earth rotation, but for EQ mounts only the Azimuth motor needs to be driven to keep focused on the target....
  5. Very simply, and you don't say what type of mount you're asking about (Alt/AZ, Equatorial, manual, motorised etc.), but in general, If everything is properly balanced, then friction of the gears meshing together, due to the weight pushing down. will 'hold' the mount in the same position, but slewing the mount around will obviously move the balance point, and so 'push' the mount to a different position. Note there are additional friction locks on each axis, if you wish to stay in one place, but the target will move out of field of view due to the Earth's rotation etc.
  6. Back to basics.... Does your new laptop have 'standard' usb3 ports and or any usb2 ports ? also do you have any short, good quality , usb cables cables and maybe a good quality external hub ? If you then connect each device singly, and monitor the computers device manager, especially looking for 'un-recognised devices', but also at the same time have system event viewer open & monitor what windows thinks is going on...
  7. If you prefer RDP over VNC (personally I do), why not install xRDP (xrdp by neutrinolabs), you can then just remote desktop into each remote host, whether that be windows or linux based....
  8. They may not be exactly the same, but they are on ebay i.e. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Wiska-10102370-EVSP-12-Vent-Plug-Black-RAL-9005-M12/143939453837
  9. Is the right location set in the EQMod control panel ??, i.e. expand the panel, with the spanner >> icon at the top ....
  10. If you can find the size of the thread (diameter & pitch), then I'm sure one of those industrious chaps north of you (for OZ that is), may well be able to supply something close to what your after e.g. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/M8-M10-Steps-Knurled-Thumb-Screws-Aluminium-Handle-Stainless-Steel-Thread-Rod/124161416204 or AliExpress etc....
  11. you also need to ensure that the USB controller devices (Device Manager) are all set, such that the power management, is set that "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" is disabled....
  12. Don't forget the drivers for all the hardware.... plate solving software, eqmod ?....
  13. if using external knobs to the Synscan software, then no, there will be no update on the Synscan display....
  14. 1.5 mm across the flats ?? I doubt there is one, the smallest I know of is 3mm.....
  15. If the menu doesn't show what you want, it my be worth installing Magic Lantern (Magic Lantern | Home) onto the SD card, as this software 'exposes' more of the in-built functions....
