404 point evaluation

- When choosing terms be sure to watch existing terms so they do not drop below a ~3:1 signal to noise ratio, including the term you are adding.
- Larger Tpoint models will give more accurate Polar Alignment Information. Even changing one term on a small Tpoint model can greatly affect what the Polar Alignment Information dialog box states.
- Watch the RMS and PSD numbers as you add individual terms. If you do not gain at least 10-15%, do not use the term. 
- Be sure to add at least one harmonic term, located under "Suggested Terms" within Tpoint. 
- Tpoint models of this depth are best used AFTER an iterative process of polar alignment is used. Such a method does NOT use Tpoint.
- If you are unsure about your optics orthagonal status, do an East and then West (separate) Tpoint model using 30-50 points. These can take as little as 15 minutes each. If the data on the East states a Polar Alignment shift in the opposite direction as the data on the West states, it is a good indication that you are not orthagonal. No system is dead on but the farther off the system is, the greater it will hurt performance (long, unguided exposures). You can also do this test during initial polar alignment routine, that does not involve Tpoint.

The Paramount ME can easily carry the Dream Astrograph all cellular 24" OTA. A fork EQ mount and 24" OTA from other manufacturers can easily cost ~$250,000. The Paramount ME and all cellular 24" Dream Astrograph cost ~$50,000 yet offer a highly corrected optical system and much lower thermal mass.
