I want to take my observatory to a new level by making everything remote controlled. I will either go with the Raspberry Pi 3B system or with a remotw mini PC. Reason why I want to side with the Raspberry Pi 3B is because it is more budget friendly and a lot less complicated.
But the thing is I do not know much about other systems (other than Windows). Where I am lost is, what software/hardware/app would it need in order to operate reliably and remotely.
My system would consist of controlling a mount (NEQ6 via 5V FTDI), ASI224mc for guiding, Nikon D5100 with DSUSB2 or FTDI shutter control (I have both).
In the near future I will have QHY 178m + ZWO EFW as well as a software controlled focuser via FCUSB. I have a powered USB 3.0 port as well.
I found some how to's online and they all require NOOBS and Raspbian installed. Would I still need these two programs regardless? How will Raspberry Pi 3B handle cold and elements?
