I got my start in astrophotography with an avx mount and a WO GT71. I had it hooked up to my mac laptop, running kstars / ekos and I've been pretty happy with the results.
I've since upgraded my OTA to a Tak 120N and have been trying to control the mount and cameras with a raspberry pi 4 running astroberry. The goal is to be able to sit in my RV and be able to control the gear, stay warm and not get bitten by insects.
A few problems I'm having now that I'd like the new gear to take care of:
Im having a problem doing plate solving with astroberry, either locally or via the internet. It just won't work. If I upload an image to nova I can get it to solve after about 10 minutes, which makes it a nonstarter for assisting with an alignment.
Polar alignment is a big pain with the avx. I'm jealous of all of the people at Cherry Springs who seem to be able to get an alignment during the day without even being able to see polaris. So, if I need to upgrade the mount, I'm all for it.
Doing real time image stacking would be cool to do, too.
Whatever I do, I'd like to keep things very portable.
