Quote:OK, now I am confused. The PE has been revalidated with PEMPro and polar alignment has been validated as within 0.2 arc min yet My unguided images of lets say 8 min show far more streaking than can be explained via PE. Is this flex from the Vixen dovetail?Last attempt showed stars that where more like a line rather than an oval

Quote:Terry, I still bet it's not good enough to make you regret buying the AP1100 But yes, I was amazed. Today I found somewhere hidden on the www.gemini-2.com site how to actually make the PEC curve you create in PEMPro stick to the Gemini II. I will try that process today and see how round the stars turn out after that. There is still some elongation. It's not much, I know that with stacking most of it will go away but I still want to see how round I can get the stars to be natively without processing. That might even be a collimation defect and not a tracking issue.
