I have been an avid KStars/EKOS/INDI user for years and it worked very well at controlling all aspects of my portable imaging setup.
I ran it from a small Linux NanoPC T4 and it was free and updated regularly.
But now I am retired and have my own observatory - and my equipment has grown as well.
While I still will use my Mac to process my images (Pixinsight and Photoshop), I am considering moving the observatory over to Windows.
Costs are not a real issue - I just want reliability and consistent results. My time is more valuable as I get older.
Please offer your suggestions if you were starting from scratch and needed a system to seamlessly control this gear:
iOptron CEM120 EC2
C11 Edge HD
ASI 1600MM pro with EFW
Lodestar X2 guidecam
Moonlight motorized Focusers
