That’s thinking in a practical way. But thinking in a commercial way, you would have designed the mount exactly like this so people would need to buy additional hubs to get all hardware working. It’s all about the money :(

I have mixed feelings about incorporating fast moving technology into long-lived technology. I expect I could get a 10-20 year life out of the EQ6R, but I'm confident most of my equipment will be USB-C a few years from now.

As an aside, I learned that a USB type-B connector will fit into the hand-controller slot, and that it'll short the slot out. I really appreciate the Pegasus UPV right now.

> I found this document suggesting that 23d3 support was added in Linux 5.5

I was debugging the very same problem for days and looking for this very information. This line is the very reason why I am still sane (not completely though)!

Thanks.

You definitely don't need to compile it yourself. `rpi-update` and its pre-compiled kernels is your friend and worked very well for me.

I explained and listed all of the steps I took here, hope it's OK to share;

I also updated StellarMate to Kernel 5.10 and would release an updated image in a couple of days.
