I had the same dilemma couple of months back and decided to go with lxd, reasons:
1. lxd allows to have reduced slew speed to avoid waking up neighbors.


Celestron added that capability with the GEM 4.19 HC firmware.


Good to know! Does that mean any Celestron HC can be updated to this version?

No. The CG5 cannot make use of this feature. It requires an accompanying motor control firmware upgrade, and one has not been issued for the CG5. And may never be--I understand memory space was a problem. :bawling:
