I can't really tell how much current it draws. I use mine with an ac adapter. My guess is that it draws about as much as the idroid. Current draw is (mainly) determined by speed of the processor, faster = more power hungry.

Yes, use the latest stable release. I reinstalled everything since my write up on stargazerslounge. That's why I would need to check which version I run now. I've also ordered a new Rock to replace other Pi. Atm I run one Rock for the camera/wheel, and a Pi for the mount and guiding. In this configuration, the Pi is the master. Downloading images over wifi, for focusing and aligning, is very slow (don't know why). I hope to speed this up with another Rock. For some reason, the Rock that I have, doesn't like two asi cameras at the same time. I use the camera Rock headless, and the desktop on the pi for phd guiding only.

I can check the exact version tonight, when I switch it on again. But off the top of my head, I'd say it's the latest stable community build (ayurfan) of ubuntu mate (xenial). Setup is prwtty much the same as for a raspberry pi.

:)

The Rock has a different processor than the Raspberry Pi, and you can't just swap sd cards. But installation is about the same as you would a standard RPi. Install an OS (Ubuntu Mate), link to the PPA's and install the software. I don't know if Stellarmate is available for the Rock, but the standard INDI distribution works, as does PHD. The Rock is a LOT faster than the RPi (RPi 3B, I haven't tested the new B+ model).

As far as I understand the eqmod driver doesn't yet support sidereal + PEC tracking. Irrespective of whether PEC is permanent or software based, it would be nice to have this feature. The driver is listed as 3rd party, so who would I need to contact to discuss this further?

Cheers,

As far as I know, this is the regular ppa. But the builds for several ubuntu releases failed, it seems (asi driver at least). You can see this on the link that Jasem posted here earlier.

The regular ppa has the stable versions. But according to the ppa listing, the asi drivers for ubuntu 17.10 failed to build.
Jasem needs to fix this before you can do an update:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade -y

Have you tried updating indi from the stable ppa? It solved my problem. (Although that was with different hardware.)
