Yep, it is difficult to keep up with all the e-mails from SBIG, and I
will be trailing off a little since I am gearing up to start imaging myself.
I had to rebuild the mount a couple of nights ago. It was dragging in a
certain position while doing a meridian flip. I end up adjusting all the
worm gears, and finally found the source of the problem. On the Dec axis,
the castings that cover the gears were dragging. I took both pieces to the
belt sander and made then about 1/16 thinner, and it solved the problem.
Now I have nice tight backlash, after all of the adjustments, so I guess
I will have to re-train the PEC again. First light should be soon though. I
am going on a small trip for a couple of days of observing at a dark sight
with my 12 inch LX200. After I come back, I will get back out to the
refractors and camera.

Actually I tried M33 but at the time transparency was zilch. Tonight
it's crystal clear, 70F outside but I can't stay up to image.
