**Please note my excellent feedback and SATISFACTION GUARANTEE**
The ETX-105EC telescope is less common than the ETX-90, and parts are accordingly difficult to find. This ETX-105EC motor drive seems to function correctly when manually slewed, but when aligning or tracking with an Autostar control, the control returns a 'motor unit fail' error after a short while. I separated the clamp knob and bearing assembly from the fork arm to inspect the motor and gear train, and I don't see any broken parts or other obvious problems. I apparently reassembled it improperly, or perhaps misplaced a washer, as it now has a 1/8" lateral displacement, i.e. the bearing assembly will slightly slide in and out of the mount (when not held in place by an optical tube assembly); it beats me why. I haven't inspected the motor drive in the base. Parts is parts.
ANSWERS to the most common questions:
SATISFACTION GUARANTEE: Your satisfaction is guaranteed, and that typically includes domestic shipping costs.
Virtually any payment method that gets the money to us is acceptable.
Please reply and pay promptly. Intact delivery as described is
guaranteed. We try to process all orders the week payment is confirmed.
SHIPPING: Alternative shipping methods can usually be accommodated. Very large or awkward items
may require commercial packing, which will be noted in the auction
listing description, including details on obtaining these services.
Item pickup from our facility can usually be scheduled on request.
Items not picked up within 30 days must be deemed abandoned, due to
storage restrictions, although commercial storage can be arranged
We pack extremely well and rarely have any shipping difficulties. We
often self-insure, meaning that if there is shipping damage, you can
simply contact us to arrange return of the item and we will reimburse
all your costs. However, we will use carrier insurance on expensive
and/or fragile merchandise. Carrier claims may require documentation before an item is re-shipped back to us, by retaining or photographing packing materials for carrier inspection. This is true for all mail order shipping situations, not
just us or just eBay.
VARY OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES. Some types of items cannot be
transaction protected and/or shipment insured to certain (typically 3rd
world) countries, in which case the bid may be void. Maximum refund for
overseas shipping cannot exceed typical domestic charges. Electronic
funds transfer or postal (only!) cash orders are options for the overseas customer if Paypal won't protect our payment.
TRADING: We love making people happy with fun items, and we always leave
feedback. By placing a bid you are accepting total liability for any
and all consequential damages, beyond purchase guarantee (it is your
responsibility to not drop it on your toe or burn your house down with
it!) Thanks--Chas & Linda
