A brief overview with images of how I cleaned both the RA axis as well as the Dec axis on my G-11, relubed everything and put the mount back together.
After several years of usage I noticed that gears became a bit sticky and I decided to take apart the mount to clean everything.
I have done this twice so far. Below shows an overview of how to disassemble the important bits of the G-11.
First a word of warning:
Below overview in images shows merely how I undertook the process of taking apart both RA and Dec axis, cleaning and relubing and then putting everything back together.
Please note that this is always done at your own risk. This is not meant to be a tutorial or a guide how to take apart your own G-11 mount.
This mount is a precisely machined piece of equipment and disassembling and re-assembling should be done with care and precaution.
