Here is my setup. Sellarmate running RP 3+ is in the blue labeled box, AC power adpter is in little bigger box aside. Mount CEM 40, scopes Celestron Edge HD 8 with 0,7 reducer, Guider scope is no-name Chinese cheapo similar to ZWO scope 60mm/ 240 FL . Cameras are ASI 1600MMC and 120 MM, Starizona Microtouch focuser strapped with cable ties undrer the HD8, Dew straps on both cameras + shield. ZWO Mini EFW ,LRGB filters are from ZWO, narrowbands from Baader.
All that connected via Cat5 cable to router. Accessing via Win 7 PC using EKOS.
The current glitch I,m working on is the CEM 40 does not co-oporate with EKOS internal guider for some reason, using theStellarmate's PHD2 for now.
The dark nights just begun (Lat 59N), so few days more after the Moon is gone, Fire at will!
Software Maxim DL 5 Pro, Startools and PS

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.

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.

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!

I know it's a lot and I know I really need to control the rat's nest of cables. With this I'm able to completely take all my light flats and darks from indoors. I setup the scheduler before it gets too dark, and watch it for a bit to make sure nothing funny happens. I the morning I check the logs then go upstairs to cover everything up. Now if we can get a couple of clear nights.... :-D
