Bryan,

Is there information somewhere that provides guidance on good/fair/poor values for Pointing Correction Status and
Tracking Correction Status, as well as the other values in the ApModel window, e.g. Tube Flexure?
There are no good/bad values per se. All of the terms are in arc-seconds. What is more important is how well pointing terms as a whole model the telescope setup and how consistent pointing is. For instance, if the scope's rings, or adapter from scope to camera, have some play then there might be some randomness in pointing accuracy as well as some additional error in the model itself.
