I am misunderstanding those items, my system built from selected components and software can do all of this and much more.


Yes you are. Read again. Andrew explained it very well.

Dont doubt it, but my comments were based on my reply to the statement that the new Celestron unit would do it "all".
Hence my clarification of

as a single standalone package, without third party software/intervention



If we are talking being able to build anything from third party bits, then the biggest difference i see is that the scope can now "theoretically" control guiding within closer tolerances as it doesnt require constant polling of the comms ports to see whats going on.

Got it. I saw the statement that nothing you had seen could do it and missed the clarification.

Thanks!
