Comment:

I have spend a lot of time testing during this awful spring to see how the mount was behaving and also to see where I can push it. You were absolutely right there is no real limit to the exposure length the mount track flawlessly so no reason to limit myself. All of the test I made show that the mount track with an average error of 0.4-0.6? Meaning for me below than the limit separation of my optic (85mm and 102mm). The traking is really amazing 99.99% of the guiding image are in the same pixel. As image speaks better than thousands of words, here is my first real image 19×30 minutes on NGC700 and IC-5070 with a FSQ-85 and ST-8300. Corners are not perfect. I have a tilt in the camera.
