AURORA 8 comes with 20w standard fiber laser source, 110x110mm field lens, EZCAD2 controller/ software as standard. Customers can choose optional 150x150mm and 200x200mm lenses if needed.
AURORA 8 PRO comes with 20w MOPA laser source (or 50W fiber), 150x150mm field lens, EZCAD3 controller/ software，and high speed Feeltek Galvanometer as standard. Customers can choose 110x110mm and 200x200mm field lenses as options if needed.
Comparing to basic Aurora 8, the PRO version performs extraordinarily better because the EZCAD3 controller supports multi-point correction, allowing higher accuracy and efficiency. In addition, the Feeltek galvanometer can reach 8000mm/s, 4 times the speed of the ordinary galvanometer.

Fiber vs. MOPA
Basically, fiber sources are q-switched and mopa uses a master oscillator power amplifier. So it's just different technology in the source. the mopa can pulse with more amplitude so you can actually dial in the frequency and other settings to create different colors and contrasts, whereas a standard fiber source has narrower frequency range.
MOPA can do this (fiber can't):
