From:	Roy Podesta (
I have an old Meade ds2102 with the single arm goto mount that appears
to be the same as the  current mount. Ever since new this mount has been
very noisy when tracking and I have been led to believe that the answer
could be to remove the old grease and to regrease and reset. Problem is
that I have no idea how to get the bits of the mount apart. Can you
suggest a way of doing this or the address of somebody who knows? Thank
Roy Podesta
Mike here: There are a few DS mount articles on the Helpful Information: Telescope Tech Tips page on my ETX Site that may assist you.
