Just bought the kit from telescope warehouse and was wondering what is the battery life on this? I tested it out and only got a little over 2 hours. I used cheaper batteries but I thought it would last longer then 2 hours. I like to shoot around 9 hours maybe longer and thought this would last at least that long.

Should last a lot longer than that. Longest I've used mine on a single shot was 8 hours. And I turned it off, the batteries still had a charge.

Thanks Zigmo. I tried it today and when I turned it on it kept saying motor error. After a few times turning it on and off it stopped and worked fine. So now I'm wondering if I jammed the motor some how. I was trying to move to the right and up at the same time. Has anyone done two moves at once or had the motor error before?

This will happen if you do not have it mounted securely when it goes though its test run.

Its made to have both Y and X axis operating at the same time.
