I have an SXW (or SXD) mount and there is movement in the DEC axis even when the clamps are locked. How can I cure this?

It is most likely that the DEC retaining ring has come loose and/or that the set screw that locks this ring in place has come loose.


To access the retaining ring, remove the DEC clamp unit on the mount head. Loosen the setscrew on the side of the retaining ring first.  Turn the retaining ring with appropriate Allen keys put in each hole on the retaining ring to tighten it.  Remember to tighten the setscrew on the side of the retaining ring.
