Are you unsatisfied with the go-to performance? Some other part of operation?

I'm not familiar with the firm ware in the AVX, but in the AS-GT predecessor backlash compensation is critical to getting good go-to performance.

Have you tweaked your polar alignment?
Have you made sure your gear is well balanced on the mount?
Have you made sure you are using the sidereal tracking rate?
If you're running off a battery/ power tank is it fully charged?
