This is already available but only on a Linux machine, or on rpi, , you can have them all in separate windows on there, so should not be too hard to implement...on a Mac, or windows machine for that matter...
Yes most if not all of the IOptron CEM mounts have this feather, as do the EQ8’s, and I think others do to..
The issue is it needs to be built into the mount firmware as EQMOD already has the feature as long as the mount supports it, as in my EQ8, but the EQ5 and 6 don’t...
So it’s really down to the mount manufacturer to implement it it think...

Is there a similar issue installing Astroberry on an SDXC card? I was going to get a 64 gig card when I saw a 128 gig card on sale and went for that. I guess I won't have to worry about running out of space on a that.

I would actually try upping the guide exposure as with 1 second and u dear you are really just chasing the seeing and not getting the best, so go to 2 or even 2.5 seconds as it evens out the seeing and you should get a better graph, all things being equal...

I have an ASIAIR PRO and purchased Stellarmate OS the goal was to use the APP on this device.
I confirm that it works like explain above, but the ASIAIR PRO device contains five 12V DC output very usefull for power supply camera, focuser, but with Stellarmate it seams that those power supply output are not active.
I'm little bit disappointed, somebody knows whether Is there a way to activate the power supply?

Did you try NoMachine ?
Yes, I have tried XRDP, and found it to be about the same as VNC, and still not good with 4k...

ssh -l astroberry -X 192.168.247.108
This requires that you are running Linux on your desktop though (or something with X11). It also means that you need to keep your desktop running and connected to the pi.

ssh -l astroberry -X 192.168.247.108
Then I can run kstars / phd2 etc and they will use X11 remoting. I should be able to use my giant monitor fully this way without being restricted to 1920.
Either way I've now got a very good system working and I think that I may switch to astroberry from my own home-brew linux system !

Any update on this point ?
I'm also interested by this feature. If it's not planned or done I will develop it.

For disk io may be you can try something like this:
$ dd if=/dev/zero of=/tmp/testfile bs=1G count=1 oflag=direct
1+0 records read
1+0 records written
1073741824 bytes (1,1 GB) copied, 6,9191 s, 155 MB/s
Change the "bs" to something smaller if you're testing slow / small disks.
Make the "of" a file on the filesystem you want to be testing
remember to remove the testfile afterwards
sometimes the /tmp folder is not actually on the disk (e.g. it is a mounted ramdisk), so choose an appropriate location for testing.
You could test read speed by changing "if" to an existing file and "of" to /dev/null
Why is the best way to check the speed increase, I have a SSD with it Installed, and an SD card, and want to check the difference...so best way please, ie software to check read and write speeds....
As has been said, it will not work without the actual long exposure mod, so you have been misinformed.... it requires some skilful soldering work to do the mod....
