Response to CloudyNights member about iEXOS 100 mount performance for AP #ExploreScientific


Jerry Hubbell - Explore Scientific VP Engineering
 

I ran across this message thread and was wondering if anyone with an iEXOS 100 would be willing to respond to this specific message
https://www.cloudynights.com/topic/649272-cheap-gem-go-to-mounts/?p=9125097

I think the OP on the thread would be interested in hearing about your experiences doing astrophotography with the iEXOS 100. I know that Michael Fulbright has recently reported to me his auto-guiding performance of less than 2 arc-seconds RMS total (around 1.5 arc-seconds RMS) which is more than good enough for imaging less than 300 mm. 

I would be interested in what people think about this thread on CloudyNights.

Being a vendor, I cannot respond directly to this thread.

Thanks
