N11 tear-down

I took apart the NexStar 11 GPS. Or rather the mount. Kiron assisted. The prime objective was to determine if the azimuth or altitude clutches were broken. I found they were not. Yeh.

During reassembly, I will adjust the clutches so to reduce or eliminate slip. A secondary goal was to see if anything else was amiss. It looks to be in good shape. Now, the next task is to relubricate the beast with low temperature grease.

Found thread locker on many fasteners. Will need to get some of that too...
