Advantages of Meridian features


Max Mirot
 

I find the new Meridian features very interesting.
Most automation software does a pretty good just of flipping the mount now a days. So I ask what are the main advantages?

Obviously, there is some lost time if you have to flip.

Also, If you a have small chip on a OAG you have a lot of complexity after a flip.
You need a rotator to get the guide star back on the sensor if you flip too.

Are there other advantages?  Does using a the same side tracking model help with unguided imaging?

Thanks
