iEQ45 - Play in mount axis

To those having GOTO problems there may be another source of errors. My GOTO's where not what I thought they should be so after doing all the other things like polar scope collimation, etc. I decided to chase down the play in the axis.

With the worm gear housing the hinges need to be snug against the housing. If they are not there is a lot of play in the axis. Once I corrected this my GOTO's seem to be much, much better.

I created a video to show the play in the axis and the housing moving between the hinges.
