I use C8SE with AVX. Pi4 with Astroberry, and 5GHz router for a faster communication, Celestron SkySync GPS, Shoestring with Motofocus autofocus, OAG with ASI120MM Mini (mono) as a guide camera, Celestron f/6.3 reducer, and Canon T3i as capture camera.
Also, I use Jackery Portable Power Station Explorer 240, 240Wh as the power source with passthrough capability, and finally, an IR IP camera for remote monitoring.

I would like to share the setup that I installed recently, when I retired.

I live in the French Alps at an altitude of 800m. Light pollution is limited to the West from a middle size city at 30km.

I had the opportunity to buy a used Sirius 2.3m dome. The rotation of the dome is slaved to the scope. The shutters are opened manually.

The dome is equipped with a Celestron EdgeHD 11” optical tube assembly + a Celestron CGE Pro mount.

I run all my astrophotography under macOS which is quite possible nowadays (www.macobservatory.com). As software I use the excellent KStars of course, and Siril (www.siril.org).

I record only color frames (color camera ZWO ASI1600 cooled).

I can control everything from home through screen sharing.

Advice : if you don’t have time and money, please do not go into this adventure !

I'm jealous of your dome, and location! What a sight.

Here's my latest setup with two different imaging scopes. The Edge11 with ASI6200, and the Esprit 100 with ASI2600.

Located conveniently in my back yard.

My semi-permanent setup on the garage roof.
(Mobile setup is here - www.indilib.org/forum/gallery/1014-post-....html?start=72#44888) .
I keep the tripod/mount there most of the time covered with a DIY cover made out of tarp.
I put my imaging rig on whenever I feel like imaging and keep it there for a week or two.

I've been into this for 3 years now. Went to indi after 2 years. Jasem hot-swapped my driver and tested/ran my setup from the other side of the planet.
I'm fully remote from anywhere. I still swap back and forth. Pics are from my remote IP cam. = (

Hope some day I could make pictures like yours. Beautiful.
Could you give more detail on the AVX support+wheels+brakes+shoes seen on one of your telescope’s pictures ?
Is it custom made ? Is it possible to learn on the design/construction with more detail somewhere?
I am just building a wheeled support for my AVX in order to move it from my bedroom (its parking lot) to the terrace. So, your setup is very interesting to me.

Thank you Jabian. The AVX is standard (low end basic mount) but I've been very happy with it. I tried several dolly options because I'm not into work... setup carrying out - connecting etc.
I can be rolled out and shooting in about 5 minutes and if clouds come in I can be rolled back into the garage in 2 minutes.
I tried several cheap dolly options and failed. Mostly due to not rolling in grass or taking bumps well. So I went to this. It's a Bogen tripod dolly. They are 400. (ouch) but they had two
open box units for 200 each. I bought one and shared the find and the other sold fast. I kinda wished I had bought them both for that.

Thank you !
I didn’t think on checking this professional video/cine stuff.
Unfortunately I’m in Spain and to the 450 USD cost I have to add 200 USD for the courier and import taxes... (big ouch).
I will check similar devices from European companies...
Anyway, my support is already nearly finished and I must confess that, all together, digital cut of the wooden base, wheels, feet, cnc cut of the feet supports and a few fancy tools I *needed* for the work, I think I have expend more than 450 USD. :(
I do not have grass or bump problems because I move the telescope through my apartment that is a penthouse with terrace, but I have to negotiate the steep drop of the terrace entrance. For this, I will use a kind of bridge with rails made of aluminium. Not tested yet...
