Stefan. i'm trying to follow your guide to set up my Stellarmate on Raspberry pi 4, but struggling with a few things, Fire captue wont start for one (cant find ./jre/bin/java, even though it's there in the directory, but thats on another thread - no answers yet though)
I bought the Flybiz wifi dongle you suggested, but the github.com/EntropicEffect/rtl8822bu.git driver no longer exists at that location, do you know where i can get this from to download?
The github suggested github.com/cilynx/rtl88x2bu but that didnt work either.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks
Alan

Hi Alan,
It has been 2½ year since I wrote the original post.
So, I guess versions of software and drivers has changed a lot since then.

Maybe this post will help you regarding the wifi driver even though it is also pretty old:
raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/...pi-4-b/112977#112977

The git repository I used was:
github.com/EntropicEffect/rtl8822bu.git

I have not updated my FireCapture installation for a while and everything still works on my Raspberry Pi 4 since i configured it using the steps from the original post.
But I guess that this guide is outdated now, so other people are welcome to make a new post or a reply to this thread with an updated guide.

Excellent guide, Stefan. Though your posts are almost 3 years old, they are still useful to the community willing to start with automation.
By the way, I would also love to share my experience with Stellarmate OS purchased, copied on 32gb card, and running on RPi-4. I am super happy with it. And the hassle of managing cables and moving and connecting cables with laptop has become the past. Everything works on my remote laptop using VNC from my living room. I am also using SeTek Wifi Range Extender to connect to the RPi-4 and mount sitting about 30 feet far from laptop, and parted by many walls in between. In winter, and while using DSLR, number of cables does go up, but still could be managed well, in summer, and with dedicated astro cam, its a very neak and sleek setup. Here is the link to the pictures shot using this setup: telescopius.com/profile/pinakoza

Here are some pictures of my Stellarmate setup.
