Hello everyone, I am a bit of a newbie to astromony. Thought I would have an interest in my retirement. I have recently built the EagleMoss Solar Systemwith no problems and thought I would carry on to build the Earth, Moon and Sun Orbiter also. However, while in the process of this I have found a problem- two gears mounted on the central column are too large to mesh with the gears on the central shaft. Since these models started way back in 2008?? it is possible there have been design changes and/or manufacturerer changes, I am only guessing. If there have been major changes it is possible I have parts from before and after. All I know is I have reached an impasse. I am interested to know if anyone else has had any issues with the Tellurion. Best wishes to all and many thanks in advance of any hellp.
Any one around St.Helens area could have a look at my EQ5. Went out last night aligned with Arctutus and Vega went to 2CVn (Canes Venatici) mount moved as it got to the perpendicular heard grinding and whirring the mount beeped to say in right place. Tried going to Jupiter mount slew over then dipped well below Jupiter tried aligning with Jupiter then going to the moon slewed over and it dipped right below the moon. In both these scenarios when I pressed the up button the mount slewed up to get the targets in FOV so one motor is not working properly not sure which one. Any help most welcome.
Hi I have the ZWO ASI120MC-S and I just can not seem to be able to calibrate it, tried everything I can think of, can not find much online. Any suggestions really appreciated as I'm randomly punching numbers hoping for results, I have a rough idea what the variables are going into but no luck. This is the best I can do sat here in bed with the bed light on.
