How accurate are the goto's from Gemini? How many aligns are needed to get the goto's accurate?

I was out last night with my G11 and this is the process I use.
Check polar alignment using polar scope. Ensure counterweight is down and scope pointed North. Cold start. Align to west stars Capella, Pollux, Regulus, then Arcturus as the 4th star Est sky. Gotos were in the 31mm Nagler FOV all night after that with a C14.

Saad, are you using Maxim DL or CCDSoft with PoleAlignMax? Is external software required for PinPoint also?

I'm anxiously awaiting a G11 that I just purchased, and I've been reading over the Gemini Lvl 4 manual and it should be very helpful with Gemini 2, as I'm not familiar with the Gemini system yet.
