Re: AP900GTO - DEC stiffness

My new Mach1GTO is due here in two days. Looks like I have a lot to learn. I hope I get good results sooner than with my G-11! The people in the Losmandy group are upset over my parting comments yesterday.

WRT the above quoted statement -- OK, that's true for Maxim DL. What about CCDSoft? Not an A-P mount, of course, but I've found little benefit to setting the dec parameter to anything other than zero for autoguiding.
