So I purchased this mount just to have an easy mount with drive. It was the version under Coronado name with Autostar 497 hand control. After some learning for home position, leveling, drive tuning, speed and tracking rates it’s about 5 minutes to get on Sun. I found that tracking rate 4 and 5 work for keeping on target. The mounting plate is very useful over cradle rings more common on this mount. I just park the mount and next time out set in same spot turn on tell it Goto Mercury and center on Sun. That bypasses any star alignment. Today was a great day with all the active prominences.
I come here every day to see all the great post and knowledge.
Thanks to all that share.
