I recently saw that Skywatcher has a new firmware beta for the synta controller that does a polar alignment. Has anyone used this? How does it work? How WELL does it work?

To sum it up - with the latest beta firmware (3.32 beta 5) i am very pleased with the performance of this feature and i like it.
