However, a couple years ago I was looking for a GoTo mount to supplement my M1. When the Smartstar PR first came out, I asked an Ioptron dealer about it since I was also considering a Mini Tower. He warned me against purchase of the Smartstar PR because it had serious issues, including the firmware and QA. The retailer was candid enough to tell me I would be MUCH happier with a CG5-ASGT or LDX-75 if I wanted a GEM.
I have no idea if the PR's issues and QA have improved since.
