EQ8R-Pro

Hi folks
breaking in this mount and I am at the PPEC stage. Trying to find some info on the period of the worm. PEMPRO has a calculator where you enter the number of teeth and in the manual it says it has '200 segments'. Do I interpret this correctly to mean the number of teeth on the worm, or does anyone have a more accurate value for the period of the worm?

thanks
martin

I trained mine with the built in PPEC. I use GSS to drive the mount (not the hand controller) and GSS has the functions to start the training and enable/disable it.
