I use SharpCap, PHD2, Polemaster and ASCOM to run my ASI1600, Altair Hypercam 174, ZWO EAF and ZWO EFW and iOptron CEM25P. To avoid having to lug a laptop out, I purchased ZWO's ASiair. Unfortunately it only supports ZWO cameras. I much prefer Polemaster to ZWO's or SharpCap's polar alignment. Lastly ASiair's menu system is not intuitive. Hunting for features is annoying and documentation non-existent. My back woes make it painful to hunch over a laptop so sitting in a chair with a tablet is much less painful. Not to mention not having to carry a laptop. At home it's only a few steps into my patio but at the resort where I'll be staying in California it's 300 yds. That's the background.
So what app and what hardware do I need? It took several hours and a new, tiny GL-inet Mango router to control a Win 10 Pro laptop from my Samsung tablet, using Microsoft's Remote Desktop and Android RD client. However, when I went to Amazon looking for mini PCs I discovered a couple of things. First of all, running Win 10 Pro would force me to buy a much more powerful and heavy mini PC. Not only that, the mini would need a 19V power source.
I noticed that some people here are using BeeLink minis. Others more powerful minis. Due to my relatively lightweight setup, and need to transport it 300 yds at the resort, weight and size are an issue. Most of the gear will be on a trolley.
I am looking for a recommendations for a 12v DC powered mini that could run my setup and a remote control app that will work without an internet connection. MS Remote desktop meets the latter requirement but is too onerous in terms of overhead. Someone here recommended TightVNC but it has some negative reviews.
A non-astro imager friend recommended a BeeLink T34. What BeeIink model(s) are being used by members?
