This shot looks very comparable to what i got with my em200 unguided when i tried it after receiving the mount. My em200 has 7 seconds peak to peak. Looks like you have a great sample... Dont ever sell it! Wish i had gotten a sample that good, might have saved me about $4500. I'm interested to see how well it guides with the pec engaged.

I agree. Paul, you're just going to have to fire up this thread again when you get your guiding going.

It's better than that - it's under 3 arcsec peak-to-peak.

Every vendor I can find quotes +/- 5". Here's some charts I've found from actual owners:

I don't know, it seems it varies quite a bit mount to mount.

Crossed wires. I meant that Paul is getting better than +3/-3 as his is less than 3 peak-to-peak.

Super shots Paul! Now if you could just send some of that good seeing down my way. I am a 2 month victim of Gore_bull warming!

It has been raining, snowing or just plain over cast since Christmas.
