My Sirius EQ-G is NOT having a problem

I feel very comfortable with the overall performance of my setup. My Sirius is riding on a CG5-ASGT tripod, which adds a lot of stability, and only one counterweight is needed to hold everything.
I am sure that I could do at least 3 minute exposures unguided with this setup, but since I am guiding with the 50mm guider and SSAG, it feels like it can expose indefinitely.
I just wanted to share my experience. When I see very good images posted on the Internet, they usually only specify the scope and the camera used; this time I wanted to emphasize the performance my mount instead. I am satisfied with the performance of my Sirius.

Never had any, except I did have some slack in the RA gears one time but I found instructions out here on CN that told me how to easily adjust out that slack and everything is now tight and back to working perfect.
