Let me firstly apologise because i know this topic has been much talked about and people's ears have soared up but i'm in the same dilemma as i was when i first started. Well to be fair, i'm even more scared now
I had a perfectly well NEQ6-PRO mount which i sold just last week so am out in the market looking for a new mount.
My budget is limited (£2500) and within this budget and in the UK market i'm limited to a very handful of mounts.
So thinking logically, i wanted to move up the scale so CEM60 was the obvious choice, but then i got introduced to the CEM60-EC mount. Don't get me wrong, i heard good stuff about both.
The two scopes that will go on this mount are the SW Esprit 100 and C8. I've been guiding using a 60mm guidescope and will continue to do so for a little while longer until i can get the OAG sorted out. (i do have it, just need to get the focus done).
Whilst i was researching and finding more, i started to read up on the encoders and the horror stories with guiding.
Is this still an issue or has the latest firmware addressed this issue?
I know the NEQ6-Pro is a beast of a mount and has served me well and caused me less issues than most of the mounts out there so i expect nothing but the same with the slightly higher price point mount now.
Thanks in advance
