SSHFS: Relative and absolute target path

I recently had to mount a system with sshfs and ended up with a error.
Aim was to mount the folder ‘backups’ in the home directory of the user ‘bob’.

The error seems confusing at first, but does say exactly what is wrong.
Solution would be using this target path:

As you can see, the first slash of ‘backups’ is gone. This is correct, because after the ‘:’, a absolute path can be given to sshfs for mounting. In my case, i wanted to work relative to the user home directory, so i simply hat do ommit the first slash.
Hope this helps someone.
