tried indigo with a raspberry pi4 works ok except everything is flipped and config is far from "out of the box" or easy for that matter :-/  

 

to be precise here are my complaints about that one:

-latitude longitude in non-standard format. (uses 00:00:00 format ... )  i say point to south and it points north :-(  still scratching my head on that one.

-not "super stable" tried it here worked, went out (was a clearsky but not really dark)  not connecting, figuring its usb port rescan ...nothing. tried with laptop ... not working so well either my alignment was off , with the farmers harvesting their field and passing by every five minutes and my hands frozen i gave up :-(

trying it again indoors i have the first point. with coordinates not making any sense ... sky looks ok but when i move it moves somewhere not related...

- looks like i have to boot the rasp before connecting the scope.

 

other than that all my equipment is recognized as should. although still working out how all of this works :-(

 

with nina everything works fine except the user i guess.  trying APT with indigo and burning another SD with astroberry see if its better.

This happens because the raspberry pi doesn’t have an hardware clock. Have a look at this thread, it’s for another mount but the underlining issue is the same:
