Paramount ME Impressions (1/23/2003): Here is a write-up on my experience and first impressions of the ME, received on May 13, 2002. My overall impression of the mount is very positive in nearly all respects.  The mechanical design, execution, precision and repeatability are unsurpassed.  After some initial problems, it appears ProTrack performs as specified, enabling high resolution unguided imaging, such as I have been doing since January, 2004.  Check out the latest results on the ProTrack report.  ProTrack appear to indeed be capable of excellent performance as long as sufficient care and effort in modeling is applied.
