  1. Hope I never have to see the inside of one of my motors... Those motors run $141US. I got two for about a third that price along with some other various CG-5 parts. They're used but in good shape. Sent from my QMV7B using Tapatalk
  2. Thanks for the reply. I have done further testing per advice from users on the "cloudy nights" forum. The DEC motor performs flawlessly when I swapped it to the RA connector. Therefore I have determined that it is the encoder on the RA motor. I was fortunate enough to find some used CG-5 parts for a really low price which included 2 motors with encoders. So, as soon as I receive them I, hopefully, will know for sure. I will let you know the outcome. Kd4wfw Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. I have a CG-5 ASGT that is giving problems. When doing alignment, as soon as I hit enter for the type of alignment(eg. Two star, solar system ), the RA motor starts moving and will not stop until I power off the mount. I have tried different power sources. I have tried different power cords. I have taken the covers off and used electronic cleaner to clean all cable connections. I tried swapping the RA And DEC motors to see the results. The results were that the DEC motor did not run when selecting alignment type. Does this mean that it is in the RA motor? Any advice is greatly appreciated. Kd
