Re: Absolute Encoders and Running a Pointing Model
Yeah, guiding can make things better. In some cases, you cant guide (i.e. no good guide star available on the chip) and the APCC/APPM model with the encoders can save the project.
Like this one:

Abs encoders can't compensate for OTA flexure, mirror-flop, etc., however a good pointing model might help a bit with those.
In a nutshell...
Guiding is like bacon. It makes everything better.
