Sydney PW CDK owners

My focuser started playing up last night - it seems that the focuser encoders are registering the position of the focuser when it moves in 1 direction only.

After spending an hour on the phone troubleshooting with PW this am (they have been very helpful), I believe the problem is in the EFA box.

So I'm looking to borrow an EFA box from another Sydneysider for a few hours to confirm that is where the problem is.

If you have an EFA box you don't me borrowing for a bit (during daylight hours only of course), please PM me. I'm in the Inner West but am happy to travel to pick up and return it

Thanks

Pete

Could you perform the test at Bintel in Sydney? They may crack one open. May...

Bintel have been very helpful.

They don't have a spare EFA box to lend me. However I now have one from another Sydneysider and have determined that my issue is not with the EFA box - so its a dodgy cable, dodgy connection to the motor or dodgy encoder/motor.
