Re: Onstep Goto Accuracy


For visual +/- 1deg really, assuming your target falls within the triangle drawn by the 3 star alignment.

Where are your clutch knobs in relation to the hard stops, are they hitting the stops before the clutch really bites?  With the clutches done up it should take an uncomfortable amount of force (tripod moving, tube flexing) to get them to slip.

The other thing that's really critical is balance, on both axis, given the weight of your scope it'll need to be close to perfect on an EQ5 - with both clutches undone no matter which direction you orientate your scope, either side of the Meridien it should not move under gravity - there are a number of good youtube videos on how to achieve this.
