On the mount, do consider the WO altaz cradle at some stage over the stock one. Made a huge difference for me in achieving and maintaining good polar alignment. I do PA in Sharpcap and camera trackers in general probably aren't even intended for that kind of precision. However the Skytracker's actual tracking performance is asking for it.
Thanks Mirko,
WO Alt Az base ordered.
Cheers,
Paul
