Do you have a Gemini drive system or the stepper drive system.

I have the stepper system that came with the GM-8.



For strictly visual, at mags between 54 and 200 (in an f16 75 mm

refractor), how useful is going through PEC, anyways. My time is

limited because of work, so I don't want to waste time overa routine

that is not beneficial.



Thanks.

You have to retrain it everytime you power off the mount (maybe

every time you turn it off too - can't remember...).



And when it's on you can only move the mount at the guiding rates.



For you, I think it would not be worth your time. If you were

trying to take some unguided photos, then maybe.



Best Regards,
