Prodigy 6 versus Nexstar 6SE

Then again, Im not getting it... why not just add the self starting electronics to the Nexstar and save the bother of the cheap looking mount and childish paint job, but again if only to attract the skittish.
Hope the Nexstar line is safe.

Agree with your Prodigy comments.

To me, having the added cost and complexity of a camera on board would only be worthwhile if the GoTo accuracy were better than that of the SLT mount (which is the same thing as the SkyProdigy without the camera). Unfortunately, it sounds like it's about the same.
I have a feeling that it would work better if the gears didn't have so much slop. I mean, how much more can worm gears cost?
