PEC for Losmandy G11

I have often wondered if PEC would be worth the effort for my Losmandy G11.
I took the plunge and purchased PEMPro 3. Not inexpensive, but seems to have good reviews.
With PEMPro 3 I can use my QSI camera via Sequence Generator Pro, which was not possible with previous versions.
I have attached two PHD log files. I think you can tell which is before PEC and which is after.
I had never assumed PEC would turn my Losmandy G11 into a $20,000 mount, but it has made a difference. You can see this in the PEAK figures. I think the major difference will be much smoother guiding.
So, a good $240 spent, and a nights work for me to set it up.
Good to see some clear sky here on Sydney's Northern Beaches.
Very rare these days.
Cheers Greg.

Looks good Greg.
Had you had any success using the PEC routines included in Gemini?
I did a few training sessions but didnt go the full distance with it as it was just as easy to let PHD do the work.
If the weather allows maybe I will have another go.

No, I never bothered with the Gemini PEC training.
