I'm not a Superstitious person, but it did occur to me a few posts back when I mentioned about my MESU 200 that 'nothing had ever gone wrong with it, that it might just be tempting fate.
So today I was doing some daytime tests with the dreaded meridian limits to work out a good eastern limt for my situation, and when I parked the mount, the Dec axis started sounding like a shaken bag of nails. I got the Sitech error
encoder tracking error
And the mount stopped moving which I guess is good.
Anyone got any experience of how to take the beast apart to inspect? There's lots of hex head bolts.....There used to be a MESU 200 forum on Yahoo, I'll see if I can find that too.
