Hello, the documentation doesn't seem to include details on the Mount Model tool in Ekos yet.

  1. Is the mount model tool an effective replacement for the hand controller's 3-star alignment?
  2. Does the mount model compensate for cone error?
  3. Although primarily for goto accuracy, is there any benefit to tracking or guiding (doubt it)?
  4. Do recent iOptron and Celestron mounts support many sync points?  I saw Rob's note about writing this tool for the G11 and EQMOD, but can't figure out how many points my CEM120, CEM40 and CGX can store (my guess is, more than I'd ever need; I normally use 5 or 6).
Thanks!
