The factory curve is a perfect fit when the mount comes from the factory. After a number of years, the gears will polish up a bit more and the curve should be re-done.

Just a clarification, the factory PE curve can be improved upon?

APPM and all its functions can be used with the 1100 non-encoder mount. All you need to do is make a good PE curve using PEMPro and you should be set for some decent unguided imaging. PEMPro came with the mount.

APPM is very easy to use, I use it with SGP/ASTAP without any problem. I guess with Pinpoint it should be no different.


However I am not sure if the investment in APCC Pro/APPM is worth it for a mount without encoders, that is, if the modeling to be really effective needs encoders or not.


Here the AP folks are best suited to answer.
