A leading Chinese Astronomy publication states...
"We selected several celestial objects and were able to locate them near the center of the field of view. This exhibited a go-to precision much higher than most equatorial mounts. We additionally inserted Messier galaxies dispersed between the constellations Virgo and Coma Berenices. We were able to effectively trace Messier objects throughout the whole field of view since the objects were displayed on a star map in the LCD screen. This feature improves performance and visibility over an automatic go-to controller with only a text display. "
