Reviewer: Keith Bond from Alamogordo, NM United States  
Originally I rated this item as good, since then I have experienced a lot of difficulty resolving a firmware upgrade which was eventually resolved because the upgrade utility had a flaw. Now I can't make the mount work with a guiding program because the ASCOM driver is incomplete for this mount. Dont't advertise your mount as ASCOM controllable when there are holes in the basic functions required to call your mount ASCOM compatible.
