I don't have one myself but I've used a Rumblepad on a NS925 and it worked out very well. It makes it very easy to just slew around looking at things. I found this capability really proved itself when I was just cruising through the the Milky Way from Cygnus down to Sagittarius with a wide field scope that was piggybacked on the NS925, then when something interesting popped up you could switch to the larger scope. Yeah you can do it with just the HC but the Rumblepad just seems more intuitive, especially when you're at it for a while.

Hey, Mark - we got another one! Seriously, Gary, you're gonna love your new CGE. Any difficulties you have will be happily answered here on CN. Honestly, I love mine. But do yourself a favor, please. As soon as you open the box, throw the supplied cables back in the box and use the VPI Cables - two 2ft (one for RA, one for DEC) is what I use. If I were you, I'd order them now, before you're tempted to use the stock cables. Heck, they're only $3.20 each plus shipping. Also, join the CGE Yahoo! group - lots of information available there, too.

Duh! I just realized you meant you ordered a wireless rumblepad, not a CGE. Sorry for the confusion. I just noticed that you list a new CGEM in your sig. I really oughta read more carefully. Well, you're gonna love the Rumblepad. Practice in the house until your fingers know how to do what you want - just like practicing the piano.
