Just read "bear's" slewing problem and, purely by coincidence, my LX 90 has started giving slewing problems tonight. When slewing to an alignment star the scope suddenly stopped slewing. Power stayed on the Autostar but the motors weren't running at all. I wiggle the Autostar cable and it goes again but elevation slewing is very slow. I switch off and try again. Once more, the scope will only slew occasionally and.
I gave up and brought the rig back indoors and try a few more times. The cable is still my prime suspect but I can't be sure. The connections look ok and giving the cable a wiggle doesn't seem to bear any relation to whether the scope will slew or not. Elevation movements are almost always very slow, often afer an initial burst at normal speed. My power supply is fine and I've tried batteries as well. No fault messages show up on the Autostar.
I already have a dead LNT module but I don't this slewing problem can be related to that.
Any ideas much appreciated but if you post after April 22nd I apologise for not replying but I'll be working abroad and will have very limited internet access.
This has, of course, happened on probably the clearest night so far this year
