DIY AstroEQ / Before first power up question
« on: July 11, 2019, 16:33:23 »
Hi folks,

I'm just about ready to power up my AstroEQ for the first time and am wondering if there's anything I should be aware of before I do. Also, assuming I've done things right and nothing smokes, then what?


Mount Support / Pulleys, ratios, EQ5 (CG5) just to be sure

I've now got all the parts to assemble my AstroEQ board.

I have a brand new manual Meade LX70 as the intended mount to GT.

From reading here, the worm gear ratio is 144:1, but that's something for the config file.

I am awaiting 2x 3M30 and 2x 3M15 pulleys, 10mm width.

Also awaiting 2x 3M 10mm width 111mm length belts.

If I read the other thread correctly, this is a simple 2:1 ratio. But someone else used 40:20 for the same ratio. Does it matter? ***edit 40:20? Must have read that wrong as that's still 2:1***

And the 111mm belt - does the length matter much with it? ***edit length matters because the motors are non-adjustable. 111mm is too short***
