Do you have some suggestion for a good mini PC (win 10, wifi, usb 3.0) to be mounted on a telescope in an observatory to control/acquire images from 2 qhy163M/C cameras, 2 focusers?

please, advise.

best,
Marco

Hi Marco,

 

There have been several threads on this topic in the last several months, so I'd suggest you go through them first.

Many options but for someone who wants to have a full fledged stand alone solution, nothing beats IMHO PrimaLuce Lab offerings.

Two below, for more search the forums for "remote", although the word will appear in other contexts, in many it will refer to remotely controlling the scope (or an entire observatory, which will have more pieces but might be useful nonetheless). Also, although I'm not personally familiar with them, https://www.amazon.c...574L/B0736Z6RSS has good reviews. But that's just one item I happen to have noticed.
