I have heard of this happening before with Meade's Magellan system. The one you have is the pricey one. The backlash is more or less mechanical and may have a problem with the drive system. Do you use the clutch release or locking mechanism? Sounds to me you may have to send them to Meade for either repair or replacement. My drive system had a locking problem that I had replaced. Good Luck!
