I looking for a polar scope for my eq3 or HEQ5 mount
Recently I acquired the eq3 mount and now I'm looking for Skywatcher Dual Axis or enhanced dual axis Motor Drive for this Mount .
So just today i got my new EQ3 mount and tripod delivered.
Brought it out, balanced it leveled it etc etc.
So i polar aligned it, and selected 2 Star Alignment.
1st star to align to: Betelgeuse.
As soon as i hit confirm align the motors kick in but as soon as the mount starts to rotate the motors stop and the hand controller resets itself immediatly and starts initializing all over again.
I discovered that moving Ra on its own works just fine as does moving Dec on its own but whenever i press for example the left and Up arrows at the same time the mount stops and the hand controller resets.
Could this just be a problem with power draw? The Synpro box takes 12V DC and is supplied by a 12V DC car outlet type power source. However i changed this to a 3 Pin UK 12V 1A DC & AC plug.
Im hoping the power supply is the issue and not something else.
