Quote:So that means that even if you hibernate the mount, when it wakes up the PEC data stored or not stored will nonetheless be unreliable due to the lack of a reference indexer??
Quote:Still, if you end your observing session in the "Home" position, hibernate and you have the PEC data saved to your computer, can't you just re-upload it at the start of a new imaging session?? why will that not work?
Quote:Answer: the CG-5 has no Permanent PEC.The rest of the posts are speculation as to why this is so.
Quote:just did a guiding exercise with my CGEM.. the PEC didn't make much difference (guiding vs guiding + PEC). maybe the PEC routine is the CGEM isn't as good as that in the CGE Pro. very likely!
Quote:Why not test it and find out yourself?Just because someone else says it works or does not work, does that make it definite? 17 days tell the 21st!
