Probably daft Skylux question

Recommended Posts

Yep its probably me but please be patient!! I own a BresserSkylux. Seems daft but I have just noticed this. The long flexible shaft is secured in position by a screw. This screw is restricted in its movement by the "plastic end bit" of another screw just above it.

Likewise this other screw will not move as it is right up against part of the mount.

To sum up, A, cant fully turn the flexible shaft and B cannot turn the other screw which is right above it.

Any help appreciated,

Pete

Any chance you could post a pic of the offending part of the mount - it might help visualise the problem more clearly. I'm not criticising your description - darned hard things to describe !.

I think you are talking about the flexible slow motion controls? Have you tried them on the other side of the mount? Assuming that both sides of the RA/Dec axis have places to control the motion
