CGX Mount Can't Find Home Position
« on: December 27, 2017, 10:07:39 PM »
My new Celestron CGX Mount can't find the home position (which this mount is supposed to be able to do automatically). Sometimes it rocks back and forth, and other times is goes all the way to one side. I've created a video of the issue:

Happy New Year. If it's new, call the Dealer and Celestron. Don't mess with it, less you void the warranty.
