Any quantitative experience with tracking accuracy for the AVX is appreciated...

AVX tracking accuracy

Bottom line is, if you want to do long exposure photography, you need to do auto-guiding to correct for the periodic error inherent in any mount short of the $10k+ offerings. Any mount in the AVX price class is going to have tracking errors that will show up in 1 min exposures, and 1 minute would only be achievable with very precise polar alignment and a bit of luck. With an auto-guider, you can easily do 5 min+ exposures with this mount. I expect the AVX is just as good as any other mount in it's price class. For visual use, the amount of tracking error is mostly irrelevant.
