A pow-sat, being much larger than HST, should be easier to keep in right
position and direction.

Of course I have neglected many factors that I don't know about (because I
don't know about them) and I may have erred with calculations, so please
correct me anybody.

Ja a power sat would be way easier to point than the Hubble because of its
size.  Nothing happens very fast at that scale.  Pointing an array a km on a
side would be a relatively easy control problem because you can have a
leisurely control loop speed and still react appropriately when the forces
are so very predictable and steady.
