  1. I just purchased dual axis motors to fit to my EQ5 mount and while that all went OK I something is either too stiff or the motors don't have the required grunt as they are barely capable of moving the mount at all. If I press the control for any given direction the motors might move a little before giving up with little clicky noises or I can give the knob or gear a little nudge with my finger and they will move again for a while, it's like either the motors are not getting enough power or they simply don't have enough grunt to move the equipment and there is only a 150pds on the mount. Anyone else use these motors and if so could you give me any pointers.
  2. For some reason my dec motor on my Losmandy G11 has an intermittent running problem in one direction, runs fine in one way, and sometimes runs the other way, but has started to get worse, and sometimes doesn't run at all................anyone have similar problems??
  3. I've been hanging onto this mount for a while, but not really bothered using it since I got the NEQ6. thinking of getting a new scope for visual later this year, and will a) need the money and need something bigger than the EQ3-2...so here it is up for sale again. I got it a year and a bit ago from FLO in clearance. It is missing the polar scope cover and doesn't come with any form of dovetail. One of the leg clamps has cracked, but I have secured it with a heavy duty rubber band and it still works fine - I have not had any trouble with it. the legs are filled with sand to aid stability. All the counterweights, accessory tray and slow-motion controls are included. The mount currently has a polar scope fitted and I also have the RA motor installed for long exposure AP - I have managed to push it to over 2 minutes, but that is at the limit. But it is a good mount for getting started with or for widefield photography with a DSLR. It won't get you taking the glorious pictures you see some of the members here coming up with, but it is a cheap way to have a go and see if it is for you or for grab-and-go widefield. It all cost me about £220 so, bearing this in mind, and the damage. Would accept £130 for the whole lot. Collection preferable, but happy to look into postage, although I suspect that will be over £10 easily. Delivery/meeting half-way could be "doable" as well depending on location. Prefer to sell as one lot, but would consider splitting.... tripod and Mount £70 RA Motor £40 Polar Scope £ 25 (again plus postage) While looking for this under the bed I also found a couple of Skywatcher eyepieces (the ones that come free with your scope) - 10mm and 25mm. These seem to be around £6-8 on Astro boot, so would be asking £13 for both including posting, or £6 inc. postage for one. And, finally, I found this Hanhnel BH-40 Ball-Head I used when building a barn-door tracker a while back - don't use it now, so no use to me. It is in great condition and has a screw in adapter on the base to fit thick and thin threads. Think these are about £25 now, so £17 including postage Thanks for looking Mark
