Quote:Dave, Do you have an ME? I do and I've got to say, given their performance I can't think of ANY reason why they would require a "quick fix work around for a poor performing mount" like TMD. (I'm sure the radar will any second go off on Melmac and Alph will be along to punch me in the nose for that one.) Is there something about sub arc second PEC and < 10 arc second all sky pointing that requires improvement? Oh and zero backlash....all right out of the box.
Chris, I have found the Bisque team to be super responsive and very skilled in the support of their mounts. Once again, for me, the quandary is WHY? You have a super mount according to your sig line. Top imagers and universities find it more than adequate to support their imaging needs and scientific endeavors.
Chris, the name of the company that makes the Paramount line of mounts is "Software Bisque."
Quote:To Joe - I am guessing SB think the ME can be improved upon as the new version comes with optional encoders on both axes.Chris
Quote:Yeah I don't understand the value of a TDM on a mount that is sub-1" with PE enabled.Really I don't.On a mount which is 5" peak-to-peak with PE enabled, then it makes sense.
Quote:So we agree Ray. BTW, I can't wait to see what your new software can do with an additional set of encoders on my new AP1600GTO. I want to compare performance against Pro Track.
Quote:Not to get off track - much, but does that mean there will not be tracking drive correction at release? Because that is one of the several reasons I purchased one with the secondary encoders. Thanks in advance.. Joe
