Your commentary proves that the cost/benefit of PinPoint is minimal, and I would go further to say that you think it is a great solution because of the sunk cost you have on your ledger. Not because its actually good from a cost/benefit perspective vs other competing options.
The sunk cost fallacy. 😉

>>> Fine, would you quibble about me asking you to send me $150 plus yearly sub costs since, apparently, it means nothing to you? Are you really that full of yourself? I have no idea why you would be resistant to this want because it wouldn't affect you anyway; or is being this kind of person is just how you roll?
haha well Dale, i'm not sure how you concluded this was me being full of myself
It's a simple cost benefit analysis.
You could make that same statement/argument of AP, or any other vendor in the solution, that they should include xyz because it doesn't work otherwise.
I'm not interested in throwing my money away, and I'm not made of money.
My position is simply that relative to the cost of everything else, having a working reliable platesolve as part of it is one of the smallest expenses I've encountered.
You may feel differently about if it's a legitimate or warranted expense, but financially speaking, the above is true.
I use SGP, ASTAP, and a bunch of other software on other setups I have, and I appreciate the advances they made. And as I said, If and when APPM supports ASTAP or whatever, i'll be happy to move to the best solution, i'm not against that at all. I'm about what works today
