I received my CGEM and it should be clear soon and was wondering what everyone's
experience has been autoguiding the mount. I will be guiding using a 50mm
Miniborg with Orion SSAG and PHD...was wondering about what settings you may be
using for Agressiveness, etc...

Thanks,
Don

I'm guiding with essentially the same setup and found on my one night out that the default PHD settings work pretty darn good. I've heard you can set the aggressiveness a bit higher...

Great...can't wait!

BTW, how noisy is your CGEM compared to your CG5? I find the RA better and DEC about the same.
