You only need 2 dec lines for quite accurate results, maybe 4 - 5 points per line.
It is working very nicely.  I actually set up a 3 line point map run with declination spacing of 5 degrees and RA spacing of 11 degrees.  Almost done with the data collection now.  Have taken 100 of 126 images and I haven't seem any subs yet where the stars aren't round.

I am imaging at 318 mm [f/3 with the  FSQ-106] so perhaps this isn't a super difficult test of the capabilities of the mount and the software.  However, I am impressed.
