Quote:Yes thanks. I did see PEC off in the above pic. Thought maybe PEC on the mount itself was on. I have not used PEMPro yet. Quite impressive PE. You should enjoy that mount!

Quote:Quote:Another minor issue (and which is stopping me buy one tomorrow) is that you can't buy it without the tripod... I agree, but Celestron CGE Pro without tripod still is more expensive than EQ8 with tripod ($4499). Anyway, I'm planning to place an order.

Quote:Neil27, Just out of curiosity....whats the price difference between the two?
Quote:I had a look at pointing with out a model. I used to own a tak mount and it could go from a SE sync to a NW star and put it bang center. It would take 10 minutes to get there but it could do it every time. My eq6 would sometimes get lost after a flip, it was hopeless.This one came close. The star was outside the cameras FOV, and an 11000 sensor has a huge FOV, but a pinpoint and sync showed it was really close. It solved instantly and I was on target straight away, no model.
