If you have excessive RA backlash in your Meade LX200gps

If you have excessive RA backlash in your Meade LX200gps this may be your problem. The adjusting bracket for the gear engagement limit is mounted to the main bracket that is slotted with a screw holding it. In my case the screw had worked loose during the years enough that the bracket slipped causing excess clearance under load.Took way longer to take off the pier and remount than it did to fix it.
Also while you are in there replace the coin battery it is impossible to do mounted Smile

Clear Skies,
