My take on it was that its self contained and very suitable for those lucky well heeled souls who have scopes at remote dark locations and so want the whole lot easily controllable and adjustable via a GUI. Similarly for university observatories to train up the students.

Thinking about it, there must be a market out there at some of the ITelescope type sites for a few of these. Look how long we had to wait for a spectrum of the new nova in Reticulum.

I too would be curious to see how it performed, preferably via a review done by someone not too bought-in to existing technology/manufacturers. People do tend to become tribal and sometimes don’t want to hear that something else is good in case it reflects poorly on their own purchase choices. I imagine we can all think of instances…
