thanks Ian,

I scoped the output of the servo amp as you suggested and saw no AC
oscillation - and less than 1mV of noise.

i tried a few different values for the capacitor. the extremes were
beefing it up to 10,000pF made no change in the problem, and removing it
completely made the oscillator unable to scale properly.
