While I'm one of those people that nag Roland for a pointing model,You can still use TPoint with your scope with a computer ... you do not need to have a pointing model in your hand-controller.
And if you are doing visual work only, it is unlikely that you would need a pointing model. If you are doing CCD work, I am sure that you can place objects on a chip without a pointing model with a 1200 mount. TPoint would certainly make it more likely that it would be centered however. However, if you were doing CCD work, you'd have a computer anyway so you COULD use TPoint for pointing.
So the point is, if you are using a hand-controller, it is likely that you are doing visual work, and a pointing model in that case simply gives you bragging rights and really will contribute little to your viewing enjoyment.
Enjoy your mount, worry less.
