You give me more confidence in Synscan GOTO accuracy but I'm still a little afraid of its performance after beeing used CG5-GT excelent GOTOs even with a C11 after a 2+2 star alignment and a bad polar alignment. I now Synscan requires you to put Polaris in the little circle of the polar scope to give a good GOTO precision, unlike Celestron HC.
I feel like changing a Mercedes with a Chevy.
Have you tested the GOTO accuracy with EQ6+C11(F3.3)+Mallincam and see if DSOs land somwhere on Mallincam's frame all over the sky or you tried only the EQ6+C8(F3.3)+Mallincam?
How good is GOTO accuracy in this situation compared to a Ceelstron mount?

If this bothers you, get a CGEM...I don't think there is any reason to avoid them anymore, and you get the NS HC you are used to...

Go-to is a wonderful thing. I have learned more since I got it than I ever thought I would. Sure beats the day when I use to spend a half hour finding a faint fuzzy. Now I get to learn where they hide and see more of them to boot!
