I asked about this last week on the equipment forum, but got no responses. Has anyone used the new CGE GOTO mount? I was considering purchase, but the inability of the mount to track more than ten minutes past the meridian (S&T March review) has made me reluctant to buy one. Seems like a serious shortcoming IMHO. Anyone know if Celestron is considering modifying this feature? Why in heaven's name would they incorporate such a restriction? :S

I have the cge1100 and I would get caught up in my shorts over the meridian flip. The only time it would be an issue is if you take long exposure photographs.
