Seems the software for the first Starbook was written by a guy who basically fell off the face of the Earth after he wrote it! From what I understand, this kept Vixen from being able to make the software changes that might have made the SXW/SXD mounts more suitable for AP.

I believe the Starbook 10 uses newly written software, especially as they're now using stepper motors in the SXP/AXD mounts instead of servo motors, as in the older SXW/SXD mounts. That being the case, the DEC jumps being caused by the old software shouldn't exist in the new... but then again, I could be mistaken.
