Would you recommend celestron's CGE mount with INDI? was created by dokeeffe

I've found a second hand CGE mount nearby and was wondering if anyone uses this with INDI?
Currently I'm using a celestron CPC1100 (fork mount) and its working well with INDI but has problems with PE and backlash.

I have 2 questions specifically:
1) How good is it for imaging (stability, PE, backlash)
2) Meridian flips: I'm wondering how these really work? Is it simply that EKOS/INDI issues a slew command to the mount again once the 'flip if HA>' threshold is reached or is there a special command sent to the mount to flip?

Thanks,
Derek
