fixed the Dec

Fixed the Dec axis. Fortunately, it was a simple repair. The motor had been pushed out of position. Used a 5mm hex to loosen the bolts. Had to first move the OTA a bit.

Back in business!

I had been worried there was more damage. Relief.

I did, however, find the custom 3D-printed Declination motor cover deformed! Sagged? But how? Why? Heat? Constant pressure? Both?
