Re: EXOS 2 GT Payload Capacity

Hi Edwin,
If PHD cannot make sufficient RA corrections you might be getting mechanical wobble in your RA. You could try unbalancing the RA so that it favors E or W, but not too much, just a little to make sure the gears stay meshed. I think there are differing opinions on weather the bias should be toward the E or W, but I don't think it really matters as long as the gears stay in contact. I suppose toward the W makes more sense because the mount is tracking in that direction anyway.
