Cleaned and re-greased RA worm block

I used the same procedure again to remove, clean, and re-grease the Right Ascension worm block.  Some photos:

I then ran the mount through several iterations of exercise, and all seems well.  Even motion, no stalls, no weird noises.

Finally I did the manual mechanical check for hysteresis on both worm blocks, and no motion detected in either case.  I think I’m ready to start polar alignment – just need the couple of days of forecast thunderstorms to pass.
