I think you made a good decision. I don't know about you, but I don't get out enough to be troubleshooting when I should be imaging.

In this hobby, you can fix any problem by throwing money at it. The guide camera you bought is probably the best "cheap" upgrade in the hobby.

I always thought that I could fix things if I just worked a little harder at it or if I went that extra mile to be more precise. And in a lot of cases that was true. However, no I also realize that if you spend all of that effort researching what works best then you can just buy a setup that does exactly what you want without much fuss at all.

Once I get my guiding working I will finally be able to just sit back and enjoy the night skies. Although I know I will find some way to tinker even though it probably won't really need it.

You can still tinker. Just tinker during the day and image at night.

Seriously though, guiding was my biggest and most noticeable upgrade. Now, you can really put your cameras through their paces. Good luck and clear skies!
