those "purists" who think that GPS and modeling are not needed, you

All I have to do is select one. A built in GPS is not needed.

As far as modeling is concerned....with a mount like the AP1200GTO that I
use....I haven't found it necessary. While unguided imaging may seem to be
necessary for some........simply guiding works so well as to render the effort
less than appealing. I think you will find that all accomplished imagers guide
their exposures.....either by built in or external guiders, off axis guiders or
guide scopes.
