I got an CEM40G today.
The mount connects and working.
iPolar seems to be working too (iOptron iPolar driver)

iGuider doesn't really work.
iOptron iGuider driver sometimes works but acquisition is slow, timesout often and then stops working.
INDI Webcam (indi_webcam_ccd) - gives "Trying to connect to: /dev/video0, on device: video4linux2,v4l2 with 640x480 at 30 frames per second"
and doesn't work.

Does anyone knows ho to make the iGuider work?
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
Thanks!

In my case, it didn't work until I applied the "chmod +rx /sys/bus/usb/devices/usb* in /etc/rc.local" hack.
Works just fine since then...

No, I don't have a PPBA.

Your guiding looks pretty good for AZ-GTi! (to me)
Can't help you as my guiding is not better.
I myself got so frustrated with AZ-GTi's guiding (I used to use it with AT72EDII with or without a reducer) so I upgraded to RST-135 for travel.
Still happily using AZ-GTi with 180 mm and below, though. Usually without guiding / computer control. Just SynScan / SkySafari.

Looks promising as I feel that after the first pass the estimated focus point is about right. 2nd pass often doesn't make it better.

Sorry, I didn't pay much attention to the Pictures folder issue as I don't use that folder.
SM 1.7 64-bit works great for me now but, yes, there are some issues which need to be addressed.
When I just installed it there were some cosmetic issues - I had to change colors, background, etc.
My equipment was only partially recognized - I had to edit rc.local file to change permissions for /sys/bus/usb/devices/usb* on every boot.
Hopefully those imperfections will be addressed in the next release.

On a good note:
-- it feels somewhat faster and more responsive than 32-bit
-- no need for disabling auto-debayer for fits viewer/preview (32-bit would crash with ASI2600)
-- my USB storage device gets mounted properly (with 32-bit I had to go to File Manager and click on it to get it active)

I think I had this too - permission issue again.
I don't use that directory so it wasn't a problem for me - I use a memory stick.
But yes - there are some issue with permissions...

I just pre-ordered one a couple of days ago : )
Also I noticed that there is a driver for it in INDI/Ekos already.
