I'm trying to get a sense of what I should be looking for to make my EAA rig a fully remote setup.
My current setup is a Celestron Evolution 8" SCT on the Evo altaz mount. I'm using an ASI533MC Pro which is connected to the mount using a short USB2 cable from the built in hub on the camera. The USB3 port is then connected to my laptop via a 15' cable, allowing me to control everything from inside my house (cable is running through sliding patio door). Since I'm tethered to the mount by the 15' length of USB3 cable, it limits my ability to target some sections of the sky (the house is in the way).
I'd like to setup a Windows 10 miniPC at the scope. The miniPC will need to run CPWI, Stellarium, and SharpCap at a minimum, with ASCOM drivers and everything else needed to make it all come together.
If you have something like this in your current setup or if you have a solid recommendation, I'd be very much obliged to hear your thoughts. I'm sure CPU and memory are my primary requirements.
I started looking at the Beelink line of miniPCs, they seem to make some nice units.
Any assistance would be most appreciated.
