Lets be clear about how well this, and other AP mounts work. I have been a long time user of their products. I was using APCC to do unguided imaging before I got encoders, and after. I was doing it before it became a fad, and I still do it now.
Five minutes, unguided frame. APCC. Witha 1720mm Mirror based Imaging Dall Kirkham telescope. Sorry to hear you are having an issue with your Mach 2, I am VERY sure AP can fix that for you.
Meanwhile. Heres the frame.

Okay, I’ll contact A-P via phone. Meanwhile, the mount ran fine until about 4:30 this morning, then it had a motor stall. Here is the link to the log file, so George can access it.
