Do you have any info on the best way to tune up the drive mechanics on
the etx-90ra drive system?  Here I am referring to any alignment,
lubrication proceudte, type(s) of lubricant to use, and specifically
where to lubricate.  For example, the gears as well as the wear pads
upon which the fork mount is supposed to slide, and the two cylindrical
central shells that nest inside one another.

Maybe this info is embedded in Tech Tips but I was unable to find it.

From:	Michael Munion (
Would $525 shipped for a ETX-90 with UHTC Coating including Autostar 497
and the 884 tripod be a good deal?


Mike here: Standard price for a new one would be $645. So if new, that would be a good deal. However, keep in mind that the new Premier Edition models are to start shipping later this month.
