The full-blown road case for the mount head is really nice. This is a well put-together all-inclusive kit and looks really well thought out. Looking more and more like Synta hit this one so far out of the ballpark it might achieve escape velocity.

Currently there are some problems with guiding (apparently with Lodestar) according to www.iceinspace.com forum. Its probably software related, hope that's resolved soon.

Does anyone have PHD graph using OAG with EQ8?

Synta are aware of a bug in firmware version 3.35 and are working on a fix. It'll be very interesting to see how that goes; the people using the EQ8 via EQMOD instead of the HC are getting amazing results.

I'm pretty sure this mount is going to be my next "big" acquisition.

Any rumors lately when this may come to the USA, or whether it may be marketed under a Celestron name?
