Hello everyone! i am wondering if it is time to grease the gears on my Vixen GP mount, i have never done this on any mount, upon dismantling the SM control i see it has some grease, not much at all. The grease is greenish in colour and very thick, more so than honey, if i were to regrease it do i need to remove the existing grease? and what type of grease would be best?
Hi Guys Does anybody know where is the best place to get replacement CG5 slow motion control knobs? My young son decided in his wisdom to start messing with my telescope and now one of the knobs has the metal ring inside missing meaning it no longer fits! So far I have found this; http://www.harrisontelescopes.co.uk/acatalog/SkyWatcher_Slow_Motion_Cable_Set_EQ2_EQ5_AZ3.html Does anybody have any experience of using these? I want a like for like replacement but I can't find one online so I guess I would have to talk to Celestron/skywatcher if I did. However if these are better then I might as well get them. I also did a bit of reasearch prior to posting and come guy came up with using these. A bit left field I know! http://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/potentiometer-knobs/2597039/?searchTerm=259-7039&relevancy-data=636F3D3126696E3D4931384E525353746F636B4E756D6265724D504E266C753D656E266D6D3D6D61746368616C6C26706D3D5E5C647B337D5B5C732D2F255C2E5D5C647B332C347D2426706F3D313426736E3D592673743D52535F53544F434B5F4E554D424552267573743D3235392D373033392677633D4E4F4E4526 Any comments, help or advice most appreciated!
