It will at least recognize my network but it won't connect to it even if I tell it to connect. It's like the hotspot broadcast has it disable and is the priority. I don't know enough about raspbian to know how to change this. Regardless, I tested it with iEQ45 Pro, ASI183MM-Pro, ZWO EFW, ASI120MM-S and everything worked great. Imaged all night and worked just like on the StellarMate Pi but obviously quicker since it was a Pi4 with USB 3.0

Slewed, solved, guided and captured the Eastern Veil without any snags. Thanks for sharing. Forgive me since I'm still new to RPi's but how do I connect to my personal wifi? I've looked all over the internet and I can't seem to figure out how you created the wifi access point. I'm sure you did it from the command line but how can I create and connect to wifi access points via GUI?

I worked some yesterday and some today. It should not be too much longer before I'm done assuming I don't have any serious issues. Maybe a day or two.

My new script for Raspbian is going to be: setupAstroRasbianPi.sh
I'm still working on adapting it. But so far it has: PHD2, INDI, KStars, INDIWebManagerApp, INDI Web Manager, GSC, Conky, samba (file sharing), Real VNC, astrometry, xplanet, and ZRam. It configures a number of settings to be better set up for astrophotography.
It is NOT done yet, but it does work. The biggest thing I still need to work on is Networking. In my ubuntu version of the script, I have it set up for DHCP with ethernet and standard wireless, a direct ethernet connection as a backup with a fixed IP, and if desired, you can click an icon to start an ad-hoc network in the field. But, what I did for ubuntu did NOT work for Raspbian. I need to change all that.
Here is what it looks like now:

Here is the script (actually it is makefile) , which builds the system:
Nice thing about it is that it is using official Kstars and other repositories so there is no need to build anything from source.

Internal Wifi adapter, wireless mouse and keyboard do not work but I read that it can be fixed by installing modules from Raspbian.
The setup was done half headless: with ssh over Ethernet + display over HDMI.
I think that this method is the best available right now - it removes the dependency on Ubuntu Mate which was very slow to adopt 18.04.
Also hopefully Ubuntu guys will build a proper image for Pi 4 soon so no hacking with firmware would be required.
