i don't see how pempro would give a periodic error for DEC.... in any case i would not believe any figure of 2" p-p periodic error for any chinese mount. even the G11 can't get that.
i was not refering to the tracking error. i was talking about how close the polar scope get when setting up. and using pempro's polar align to see how close it was. sorry if i said it wrong. or confused anyone. my mount its self has a PE of 13 p-p using pempro and again sorry if i confused anyone.

Uncle Rod, what do you use to guide? I've tried several cameras, a few different guide scopes, and at least 4 different software options. Every single time, I get one of two problems: either very streaky stars or it starts beeping at me after a minute telling me its not guiding. I've tried bright stars, less bright stars and tinkering with the settings in advanced setup. I've tried it on two different CG-5's. I've tried running through the ST-4 port and through the hand control from the computer. I CAN control the scope, its not a lack of communication with the scope itself. But I cannot successfully get it to guide. I've updated everything I can update, and banged my head against it time after time. Any ideas what it would be otherwise?
If it was one mount, I'd be willing to say "bad mount", but two different ones behaving exactly the same? I've tried swapping out controllers between them, that's not it either. same problem on both sides. So I'm stumped as to where I could be going wrong.
