It would equate to around +0.28 and -0.28 arc-sec, not +0.28 and -0.28 arc-sec/pixel. smooth tracking

Here's a YouTube video that I put together to capture the excitement around the arrival of my AP. I hope you enjoy it Watch "Astro-Physics 1600GTO German Equatorial Telescope Mount": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CoCf...e_gdata_player

Ah, there he is. I have you to blame for this AP fascination! It all started after seeing that lovely MACH1GTO of yours a few years back

I picked up a lovely, used AP Portable Pier this weekend from nickb00 in Geelong, Victoria. The optional shelves are a great feature. I'm all set for darker skies, but I'm not sure that I want to part with near-perfect polar alignment!

The turn buckles allow few degree of level adjustment and this feature is not very evident from online specification. I know a few individuals including me were very reluctant to get a portable pier which can't be leveled on a slight slope. I can assure this pier works perfectly alright on a reasonably uneven field.
