EQ6 Improvements

par le Oct.24, 2012, sous Astronomy

I just received my EQ6 mount.

This mount is really robust but has a lot of little but anoying conception errors.
– Azimuth axis is metal to metal so it is very hard to move
– Declination adjustment is very hard to set-up at latitudes higher 30°

So I decided to fix the issues.

First adding a teflon washer in the azimuth axis
Second extending the notch on the declination.
See picture below

Additional Notch glued and screwed

Next modification will be the replacement of the two motors and gears with new 400 step Nanotec motors and belts.
The motors will be mounted on a new plate that will replace the original front plate of the electronics.
The motors will be controlled by a developement based on the PIC ASTRO web page.
and other links on the Astrolabo web page
