I couldn't resist trying this as I had an adapter that happened to mate the two pieces together. Even though the sidereal tracking is only in azimuth, it still held Jupiter in the FOV for a few minutes at about 60X with small adjustments to the altitude control. Not a lot better than pushing a dob, but was some improvement.

Anyway, I thought it looked cool.
