« on: 21:08:50, 06 November, 2017 »
hi lads  if my scope is to heavy east will it cause eggy stars   but some of the subs were round  it was quite heavy east all balanced now little heavy east i had simular problems lasy year with squiggly stars   the mount motors were going quiet  i used super 10 spray on to to mount mothyer board and that sorted that out so i went down my obsy now to listen to the motors for 15 minutes motors were going a bit quiet  but not as bad as last year  ill do another test tomorrow listen to the motors     cheers

Too much of an imbalance can cause issues, the stepper motors don't have that much oomph. You just need enough to keep the gear teeth meshed but that really doesn't need to be much at all.
