They're pretty easy to use. The only bit that confuses me from time to time is the meridian delay feature. It's explained in the manual, but I use it infrequently so I forget what to do. It only works when you drive the mount via the hand controller, so it's a problem if you're using the computer to swing to a plate solved image. If anyone knows of a solution to that problem, please let me know!

Excellent choice Mark - you will love the Mach1 GTO.

What a mistake!
I'm sure you'll be disapponted with it. Its a bit of rubbish really.
Because I'm the kind of guy I am, and hate to see anyone let-down, I'll give you 2K for it!!
Can't say fairer than that!. :D

It should be a fabulous mount that will give nice round stars which is what its all about - the first milestone is to achieve round stars. Which is not as easy as it sounds but the AP should make it a whole lot easier.

good on ya Peter sounds great , just dont worry if it happens to look like a Cgem no one will notice in the dark :D

I am hoping so Greg , I managed ok with 5min subs on the Cgem but it was hit and miss . I love the fact that it is actually lighter than the Cgem or G11
yet will carry the RC10" without effort and not to mention straight out of the box PE :thumbsup:
