Thank you for the review. I have iOptron's ZEQ25 on order and I found your take on the SkyGuider very informative. Thanks!

At what focal length did you perform your tests?

Thanks,

Gale

Hi - Always good to see a review. Product looks very well made. Also curious about the focal length you used for your testing. Does the unit require to power inputs: 1 to the led and one to the panel?

I have used the Sky Tracker with focal length up to 200mm and exposure times up to 30 sec with excellent results - posted on CN early last year.
