Ioptron HEM27 owners thread.


Recommended Posts

Ioptron love to say 'backlash free' don't they 🙂

The Ra is locked, no way to balance It and apparently no need to (It chucks my C9.25 about with ease.

Dec is the same as any other Ioptron, can be adjusted to minimise backlash but all depends on your luck ... don't forget there is a belt in there that will give backlash if too loose.

And if by fluid you mean really smooth and free then yes, Ra is very free and 'spinny' 🙂

I've managed the 3rd axis balance by rotating the OTA as so the EFW and autofocuser become the offset weight.
