Recommended Posts

Hi, today I got a PM from dexter77 and he asked me this:


Today I've received my SW AZ5 on steel tripod. It looks very good and I'm going to use it with Mak 127. 
I've noticed that slow motions are working in strange way, could you tell me is in normal or should I adjust something?

1. Azimuth Slow Motion.
I've noticed that I can use slow motion only when I really tighten azimuth clutch. When I loosen it a little bit then slow motions are not working. Is it normal?

2. Altitude slow motion.
Slow motion is working very smooth whenever I loosen or tighten clutch.

I've recorded video, you can see it here, is it normal work of azimuth slow motion in that mount?


My mind is all over the place lately so cant advise. Please reply to dexter77.
