The result... WOW .. The new RA has a very smooth peak to peak of 6.8 arc sec that PemPro reduced to 1.5 peak to peak. The DEC guides much better, and after a 3 star alignment, the pointing is spot on. I slewed from M27 on the east to M13 on the west, three times and they were centered on my ST2000 chip every time. And the best for last, I got a FREE MI 250 sticker for my pier! Was it worth it, with out question, I bought my mount 3rd hand, and now have a brand new MI 250 with all the latest upgrades, and one smoooooth machine. If you go to my site under mounts, you can see the old and the new. The mount is now ready for the Plane Wave 12.5 (probably ordering in a few months) Now if Larry can just do something about the WX in the northeast!
Clear Skies, Paul
