Pulse vs ST4 guiding

Hello,
My first mount didn't have an ST4 port so I was doing pulse guiding.
Then, I got an HEQ5 and was still doing pulse guiding as I didn't want to use an extra cable.
Tonight I tried ST4.
Didn't really see any difference.
Should there be any?
Just wondering if I can forget about ST4.
Thanks!
Max S.

Forget ST4 if the mount driver support pulse guiding, this is the case for INDI Eqmod.
The interest of ST4 is only for non-computerized mount where it is the only option. For example if you use the HEQ5 only with the handpad without computer connection.

Yes. That's what I thought... but had to give it a try.
Thanks!
