|5 – Synta HEQ5 -Worm / Motor Engagement for RA and DEC Axis|
This procedure will guide you in setting up the HEQ5 worm engagment and also aligning the motor gears after the Declination and Right Ascension reassmbly. These steps are best carried out with the HEQ5 head mounted onto its tripod or some other type of stable base.
The worm setting procedure – especially for the RA axis is very hit and miss and you will probably need to go through it several time to find the ‘sweet spot’ where there is both no play in the mount and the RA motor can turn the mount smoothly with no motor stall or gear binding.
