Tried it out last night. Didn't even think about which way I was turning the mount, just kept watching the error and made sure it was minimised. An absolute breeze and a very satisfying experience. What used to be a chore is now part of the fun. I thought dedicated electronic polar scopes were easy but this is on another level. Very nice.

Go to whoa I can get my SXP to less than a minute (usually mere seconds) PA in 5 mins max. Intuitive, simple. Iíve been paying the license over 2 years now. Worth every cent with my portable setup.

I canít say anything positive about the QHY PoleMonster on the other hand. The software when I used it was atrocious and made zero sense. Hope they improved it. But why bother if you already have an imaging scope?

When did you use it? I still use it today, and can be PA in about 3-4 mins.
