My experience is with using Maximdl. I agree it required some reading to understand, but it's breath of functionality is the reward. I personally love the scripting of the automated capture routines. Here I have a full list of routines for different objects, including various routines inclusive of narrowband filter selections. In one routine I named "high dynamic range objects", I have LLRGB capture with six different exposure lengths per colour channel. All you do on the night is load the sequence, and you're on your way. Also the plate solving function is extremely simple to use. Another feature I love is the point scope here. A simple calibration routine is run that allows you to click on your image to centre your FOV.

As for mosaics, the plate solve feature will certainly help in aligning your frames. Not sure if it can do it automatically though, never tried it my self.
