Provided that the mount you choose is appropriate for the size of scope that you put on it, you will have to perform an alignment procedure, and once that is done a selected target should be within the field of view of a low power eyepiece.
You then centre the target if necessary with the direction buttons.
Once centred the target should stay in view for an extended period of time. [at least 30 mins, but usually longer].
The better the alignment is performed, the longer the target will remain near the centre of the field of view. Even at high powers, using a decent mount, motor vibrations should be pretty much undetectable. If they were, you couldn't do astrophotography. The only time you would see any vibration
would be when slewing from one target to another.
