To sum up:

•I would NOT recommend 3MP SSAG for autoguiding since I was NOT able to get it configured with PHD to even tell you about its performance

1MP SSAG remains a good entry level autoguider, as always...

Lodestar seems to have a ton of defects (column defects/elongated hot/dead pixels in my case...), which may not interfere with guiding but not a good thing to have at this price tag

ST-i monochrome seems best when it comes to NOT having column or dead pixel defects (Note: I have tested ST-i with PHD and it works great)

Hey Mike -

Was there a reason that the SSAG at Casby was not working for you? Any chance you could capture Jupiter through the 10" with the lodestar/st-i some night? I would love to see how each of these function as an imager as well.
