I was visiting the in-laws this weekend in the Detroit suburbs and I didn’t want to waste a clear sky new moon weekend. So I packed the LX70 mount to try imaging in narrowband from class 8 skies without guiding.  I bought this mount from a fellow CN’r and I am pretty happy with how it tracks with just the RA drive motor installed.  I polar aligned with Sharpcap until I had under 00:00:10 error on both axis’s.
