What about APT (or SGP) for eclipse image coordination?

I have both, and know how to use them at night.  In this forum, I mostly see Eclipse Orchestrator and Solar Eclipse Maestro.  I don't know either, and the former seems to be a side job of a guy at Daystar who is busy making filters and not fully engaged with his software product.  I know less about SEM.  What if anything won't the above two nighttime camera control packages do that is needed for an eclipse?  I plan to image using a Borg 90FL F4 astrograph with an ASI6200MC on a iOptron HAE29EC.  Visual eclipse observing will be AT72EDII w/24 mm Panoptic on an alt-az mount.  Thanks.

 

All the best,

 

Kevin
