of those choices, I'd say EM200, but I'm somewhat biased

Then that would solidify the EM200 votes.
Let me add;It will be in a observatory mounted 'yes for imaaging.Thanks

Since you say it has to be guide friendly, I assume it's for imaging. In that case, I'd say EM200, though you might also want to take a look at the Mach1GTO.

Nothing a huge amount of money cant fix!

Sounds like good advice to me. I hear though that the Mach1 is crazy hard to get. Translation - go with the Tak.

Both my G11 and EM200 tracked well and that is the most important thing to imaging. I am comfortable in endorsing the G11. Losmandy has steadily made improvements in the worm gears and has a really fine mount for imaging.
Also, in an observatory, when you shut down the EM200, you must do another aligment when you turn it back on. With the Gemini you can simply start it up and it remembers the alignments... faster start up. Hard to beat the G11.
