This is a very solid mount! I purchased it as an upgrade from my StarTracker Pro, mainly for use with my WO RedCat 51mm astrograph. I've also mounted my Meade ETX-90 and Canon EF 100-400mm lens. Polar alignment is easy, as is the one, two and three star alignment. The go-to function is reliable and nails catalogued objects effortlessly. I don't have an auto guider however, even on a one-star alignment, the mount tracks a target for about three minutes before trailing is evident when recording images through the RedCat. Criticisms are minor by noteworthy. First, the polar scope isn't illuminated, which is hard to understand given the price of the mount; it seems like a trivial thing to cut corners on. Second, the polar scope reticle is not aligned with 12 o'clock high, like on iOptron's polar scope, with the scope in the home position. That's a minor inconvenience, but again, something that shouldn't be for an otherwise high-quality mount. Last, the alignment star menus are limited and don't always include bright, well known stars even when they're visible. Quibbles aside, this is a fine mount which has stepped up my astrophotography game. Recommended!
