  1. Just to ask, do I need to set the slew rate to 0.5 in the synscan or does it refer back to that automatically after changing the slew speed?
  2. Thanks for the reply. Polar alignment is as good as I think it can be. Balance is offset.
  3. Hi. So I have a problem somewhere and I’ve been trying to fix this for a long time. I’m at my wits end with this!! Is so frustrating setting up every time and not being able to sort this. As you can see in the picture, I think I have a problem with R.A. stars move in one direction not around the object. I have upgraded to synscan and also had the mount tuned but the problem is still there. My polar alignment is spot on, so is my balance and level. I set up: Level balance in all 3 axis polar align 2 star alignment focus i am not guiding because my mount weight doesn’t allow for this. I have had good images out of this before what’s going on!??? I’m at the point of giving up. I can’t afford a new mount right now so I’m really hoping you lot can help me. Please......
  4. Did your kit come with a RS-232 cable? Just got mine and it’s not in the box...
  5. Hi I’m just wondering if anyone knows if there is any difference in these? Is there more torque in the synscan motors? If so will it deal with more of a heavy load?
  6. Hi all. Think I've sorted it! It seams there a sweet spot when adjusting the RA gear. Didn't have much time as the clouds rolled in but will check on the next clear night. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Same stuff guys. This is pointing north Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Thanks I'm at it right now & It has made a difference, but my stars are oblong instead of round!? Do you know why? Never had this before. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Thanks (dph1nm) will check tonight. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Hi guys thanks for the reply. I striped down the head last night and re-greased everything that need it. (Southerndiver357) I think my RA gear was to tight + there was next to no grease on the gears. I've adjusted it and it seams much better now. (SteveA) I've checked and checked and checked my reticle and I can say that it is spot on. I also sorted the date and time on it yesterday so I know it's Polaris. (1parsec) can I drop the east leg to make it off balanced? Thanks again guys for the replying. It's clear out tonight so I will drop back and let you know how it went. Just hope it goes well and that it was the gears being to tight that was messing it up. Thanks Perry. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
