On the other hand, I really prefer the CGEM software / controller interface and the all-star polar alignment. I can't say enough about how good All Star is compared to the G11. The G11 has a polar scope, a polar align assist, and a polar align correction routine. I use them, but I've never got to be friends with them. They work, but for me aren't nearly as friendly. On the CGEM, the All-Star alignment was so easy and good that I neither had or needed a polar scope.
Here's a link to Tim C's post about CGEM PEC. My results were similar. Since you're planning on doing astrophotography you'll be guiding, so the PEC issue is probably a small issue. Link.
