Roland always tells: "The single most important item for the imager is the mount. next comes the mount. Then comes the mount.... Get the picture?"

I can confirm he is 100% right. grin
Attached is the proof. I did some imaging last night, seeing was very good. Good seeing and good focusing means that tracking problems will be more visible on the image. 8O
So...

Yes, that is priceless advice. I have gone through 3 mounts before finding paradise with the Mach1.
Your P. error is muy impressive.
