Stellar Mate tablets

hello

Does the Stellar mate tablet app run substantially better especially for live stack on high end tablets versus my $80 tablet?

iOW does the majority of the heavy lifting happen on the Pi or the tablet?

Thank you!

I do not know how the live stacking is performed, and so I can't be confident of that.

I can say that most processes such as image capture, plate solving, etc are run entirely from the PI, and only their status and control are synced to the app, so the quality of the tablet has no bearing on that. It will effect the upload speed and display of images on the tablet, but I suspect that doesn't put too much strain on even a cheap tablet, and it doesn't stop the PI from starting the next frame or doing it's work.
