Description

VERY impressed with this little CEM25p, I was debating the CEM25p vs the StarAdventurer or SkyGuider Pro. Very glad I went with the CEM25p... I also tried auto guiding with it and was getting 0.6-0.8" RMS. THATS RIDICULOUS for an $800 mount : )

did not use my Polemaster... tested the polar scope. It is very good, I measured only 3 minutes of arc drift in PHD.

Will be using this when traveling with my GT71 or Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 lens, and can easily carry on the mount and the GT71 together on plane. Trip to El Salvador in 10 days... Bortle 1/2 : )
