A Chinese Navy monitoring station has received a new optical turret for tracking objects in the upper atmosphere and in low orbit. The second image shows the result obtained by the turret on the moon and the international space station.

interesting update.
Perhaps indicative of present/to-be-achieved status of PLAN's sea-based ABM capability?

No.

This is just a new optical turret for tracking stuff in the upper atmosphere and low orbit. It may or may not be related to naval ABM capability, but and is very non-specific overall.
You can absolutely have an ABM capability in service without having "new optical turret", or you can have a "new optical turret" yet not have any ABM capability.

Really doesn't mean much at all.

Translation:
Recently, the 055-class destroyer "Anshan", the 052D-class destroyers "Baotou" and "Qiqihar" underwent a full maritime training evaluation and testing at the PLAN's Naval Ship Training Center. The evaluation was conducted continuously around the clock, and all passed the test.

Anshan will soon be taking a small fleet on an excursion.

This is 中国人民解放军92493部队, PLA 92493 troop, a Navy weapon test unit, they operate test range, target drone, missile and ships, also involved in SLBM test. Optical tracking is their key instrument. As the meaning of high altitude and low orbit, I guess that means SLBM test tracking.
