I did look at the MGEN but as you say very expensive .

Guiding is very desirable though. I've gone for the easy to use but expensive MGEN guider. Most use the cheaper laptop based guiding.

The hand control polar alignment routine is plenty good enough once you're guiding (by whatever method). I haven't checked my PA in a long time, just using marks on the ground for the tripod feet and a mark between the mount and tripod.
