Vey nice remote observatory! Wondering what you use as outside panels. They seem light and water resistant with the added bonus of not requiring painting.

Thanks.

Thanks, I use some aluminium composite material panels for the box, the frame is wood.
All panels can be removed with strict minimum effort.

Kstars Mac osx
Odroid C1 running indiserver (kept up-to-date with apt-get update/upgrade)

Here is my setup.







Looks a bit messy still but I now only have to attach a single 12V power supply (Battery or mains).

Raspberry Pi running Indi connects to a dedicated Wifi router. Kstars / EKOS running on an old Macbook Air.
Pegasus personal powerbox. Provides all the power and the power/logic for the dew strips.
USB 3 powered hub.
The 2 BECs provide 5 V for the USB hub and the Pi.
Scope is a SkyWatcher Esprit 100.
Focusser is a PrimaLuce Senso Sesto.
Guide scope is the converted finder scope from my 8" dob.
You cannot see it on the pictures but I also have an iPolar (best non essential piece of kit I have bought).
All supported by a belt modified HEQ5.
Camera is a non modified EOS 6D and I am currently using a STC Dual narrowband filter (Ha and OIII).

It did take a while to get everything working reliably but now it only takes me about 15 minutes to get everything ready to take the first image.

Stellarmate on RPi 3B

I am also under the smoke of Schiphol in Roelofarendsveen and I have also been imaging the Veil Nebula.

Here is my current effort. Still needs a lot of work but I am fairly pleased with the data.



Still waiting for the field flattner. According to Robtics they are available again so I hope I will have it soon.

Here is a photograph of my Indi setup. It consists of:

An OnStep modified Astro-Physics AP400 mount;
An ODROID N2 computer running Ubuntu, KStars, EKOS and Indi server;
A RPI running as a hotspot;
A ZWO ASI1600 camera and Zagyl filter wheel;
A Pegasus Astro DFMC focuser and Power Box;
All this on a home made telescope cart (missing a wheel :-) ) that will allow me to roll it out of the garage and get ready for observing/astrophoto within minutes.

The OnStep controller is the grey box mounted on a small plexiglass sheet, attached to the tripod leg. The cart design was an adaptation of one, presented by the BBC Sky at Night Magazine ( www.skyatnightmagazine.com/advice/build-...ing-telescope-dolly/ ).

Enjoy!
