You have some impressive stuff. What camera are you using?

I bought APCC pro and planned on a pointing model. But once I put the Mach1 to use I found I did not need a pointing model. I've not found any pointing error. If there is some because I unclutched and moved the mount a plate solve syncs it in 2 seconds. (ASTAP)
I have read that it would help if I just track without guiding for longer exposures. Since PHD2 is free why "not guide".
I've found no need for a pointing model to improve accuracy.
I'm a newbie - this May was my3 year. I like to enjoy the hobby so I opt for fun and fast results.
This often means that I also skip all calibration frames.
Some of my stuff.
