I have a lapsed Sky X Pro serial and the T-point add-on, and I'm looking at what renewing the subscription does.
On page http://www.bisque.com/sc/content/SubscriptionExplanation.aspx it says "TheSkyX Professional Edition's subscription renewal includes the Camera Add On, Dome Add On, and the TPoint Add On." So if I renew (my expired) Sky X Pro for $100, I will get a new serial that activates these Add ons and allows downloads for a year?

You have the download part right, but you continue to use the same serial number(s), and no add-ons are activated by simply renewing your subscription.
What that statement you quoted is trying to convey is that renewing a subscription to TheSkyX—by providing access to the latest version of that software—will inherently also provide access to the latest purchased software add-ons, since they are built into TheSkyX. (It's technically correct, since even unpurchased add-ons are included, but they remain inactivated.) That is, you won't gain access to add-ons for which you have no serial number. For more information, see this post on how to obtain and activate TheSkyx Pro Add Ons.
