Re: iexos-100 slewing is sticky #iEXOS-100

The 100 has the same motors as does the exos2.  The torque is the same.  It’s ability to handle of balance loads is probably the same.  If anything it will be better at it if the scopes are smaller.

Start with a well balanced tube with representative loads and you should be fine when you change things.  Clearly if you put in a 3 pound Barlow in place of an 8oz small eyepiece things are gonna get a bit crazy.
