Subject: DSX-2090MAK Alt. drive "Pinging". Sent: Monday, August 11, 2008 19:51:41 From: stange (firstname.lastname@example.org) Thanks for previous info on 495 extender cable. I have avoided being familiar with telephone nomenclature in the past so it is hard for me to describe what I try to do accurately and to understand phone/networking adapters. Radio shack is pretty much a mushroom colony so no help there. Anyway... Something new now. I picked up a near-new DSX Maksutov 3.5 inch with a 495 controller at a yard sale. Everything checked out but I noticed an unusual "ping" or "ringing" sound eminating from the Alt. motor area only during equatorial tracking. Anyone have any definite answer on the cause? To date I have not been able to find a broken single-arm Autostar mount to tear apart to discover how to take the upper assy apart (properly) and to give me a diagnostic base for future problems. Anyone have a mechanical drawing of the Autostar single arm mount? Or know how to non-destructively remove the (upper) housing beyond knob and axis shaft components removal?. Tnx. Larry Stange
