I got a chuckle reading about your experiences with the Meade 201XT. That was my first "autoguider" as well. I actually did get mine to work... sometimes. Definitely an 'interesting' piece of equipment.

I totally agree. A great report and especially so as it's backed by some months of use. One thing I'm curious about is the noise level. If anyone knows how does it compare with the AP1200? To my ears the AP1200 noise levels are perfectly acceptable and quite pleasant to my ears.
The one time I observed with Jared (I think it was his first light with the new Mach1) and heard him do a full slew it was much quieter than my CGE. I won't say it was whisper quiet, but it was not distracting by any means. It's a very nice mount that's for sure.
