    Actually I did mention it. I suggested doing the mechanical assembly then putting the cables back on

    Yea that was an expensive oopsie. But its all good. I am running some tracking tests right now and while the wandering on RA is still there it is not as dramatic and recovers more quickly and as things settle down it seems to get a little better.

    I also recommend Astro Baby's excellent guide for the EQ6 mount as there are a lot of similarities but there is also a lot that is very different for this mount.

    I used the blog to put this together for a more 'permanent' and coherent article. Unfortunately I had to break it into 4 sections.

    Please have a look and any questions, comments, feed back is appreciated

    thank you so much for all this info!!!

    Just joined , very interesting might tackle after I fix my oopsie as you called it but mine was reverse polarity on the power. Just fixed my Handset smoked chip and now need to replace or fix my controller board.
    If only I could find a circuit of it.
