Re: To guide or not, that is the question

Hi Ed, thanks for the kind words.  

I have been extremely happy with the Mach2 and going unguided with my short focal length setup has worked very well for my situation.  Easy to set up.  Running a 3 line APPM model centered on the declination of the night’s target (I set up and break down the rig each night) is quick and can be completed as the optics are cooling and it is getting dark.  

I have been using AP mounts for almost 20 years and the mounts and software just keep getting better.
