Quote:GGEpro is to tall. Plus it does not have the same quality as the G11 IMO.
None of my kit is part of a two year pay to be part of beta test, that still isn't close to ending.
Money can't buy happiness, but it sure makes living with misery a lot easier!

Quote:Why not check out the Yahoo Losmandy Users and Gemini users groups and ask them there?That's where the beta testers and Rene all hang out, after all..,Regards,skybsd
Quote:One of our imagers used to have a 14" Meade on a G11 and produced some nice stuff. I'm going to venture a guess, but I know his first name is Dwight and I think his last name is Tally. You might want to look him up.David

Cloudy Nights is the best astronomy community on the net. Certainly the yahoo groups have their place, but the user interface is awful, frankly. In my opinion, when a CN'er asks a question here and it told to go elsewhere, this is pretty much a non-answer. There are several active GII users active here. Rather than encouraging members to seek answers elsewhere, why not let the thread unfold through posts from GII users?
Quote:if you plan on imaging and use automated software or the sky to control the mount, I am not sure there is a big reason to change from the Gemini 1. Once you have turned it on and aligned the mount, you don't even touch the hand controller.
Quote: If the OP has their heart set on a G11 I'd recommend waiting until G2 is out of beta and stable with full functionality.
scopes, cameras, mounts & time enough at last
