EQ 3 strange clicking noise - affects imaging

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I am just writing this in the middle of my session and I have come across this strange clicking noise. It affect s the imaging because the whole scope is jolting. Imaging is impossible because of the vibrations causing trails.

Ifanyone could solve this it would be greatly appreciated.

I've had a similar ticking noise with a Celestron mount . Mine was caused by the meshing being to tight. When the mount was tracking it would stop for a split second and then jump which was the ticking noise I assume . I was told after repair the RA locking nut had slipped . Hope that helps
