Great mount for the price

Bought this mount for beginner level astrophotography, and haven't been disappointed. I'm shooting wide field (360mm focal length) at 2.8arcsec/pixel. After some minor adjustments and relubrication, this mount can keep my guiding between 1 and 2 arcsec. As expected with lower end mounts, declination backlash is significant. PEC is pretty big too, but nothing that PHD2 can't handle. Haven't tried PEC training yet. 3-star alignment with synscan is hit and miss, probably due to the lower end components. Best bet is a good polar alignment, then a 1-star alignment close to your target. Overall, I think this is a good mount for a beginner. For the price point, I don't think there's much competition.
