This is very thought provoking … As a real newbie trying to learn the ropes, I may have been overthinking this.
Are you suggesting that I can forgo CPWI altogether? Just start with the scope at its index position, complete a quality polar alignment using the PoleMaster, and then go right to SGP?
I admit, I have been worried about having CPWI tracking, while SGP is also making adjustments to keep my target centered.
Right now I have no guide scope, but I have one on order, and plan to add PHD2 to the mix.
