32 GB or 64 GB ( Raspberry pi 4 )


For the price, I went with the 64gb. I never come close to filling the SD. My 32 I did a couple of times.

Backups do take up 64gb's, but they zip down to about 16gb's.

But whatever you do, make sure you get the fastest SD you can find. Mine are 100MB/s, C10, U1, Full HD, A1, Micro SD Card.


Ok, I would take this sd-card - SanDisk Extreme Pro 64 GB microSDXC
Thank you for quick reply

I am thinking of buying the zwo EAF, but my question is does it work smoothly with ekos.
do I need to install a driver for INDi?

Jan created a new topic ' StellarMade 5Ghz wifi - Pi vs Barbone' in the forum. 9 months ago

I use SM on a Raspberry Pi 3B + and 5Ghz wifi.
StellarMate is fully installed on the Pi.
The WIFI speeds of this 5 Ghz wifi are very disappointing with the RPI - it fluctuates between 25 Mbps and 44 Mbps.
Have tested this via "speed test cli"

I use SM on a Raspberry Pi 3B + and 5Ghz wifi.
StellarMate is fully installed on the Pi.
The WIFI speeds of this 5 Ghz wifi with the RPI is very disappointing, it fluctuates between 25 Mbps to 44 Mbps.
I tested this via "speedtest cli" in the terminal.
Via the LAN cable this is Around 18O Mbps, but it is definitely not an option for me.

troubleshoot
StellarMate is connected via VNC to my iMac and worked well the first time.
After 14 days it was another clear night and I connected SM RPI via VNC and it worked, but every time I opened a window another window that minimized stood up.
example if I got up "Ekos window" and wanted to open "mound control window" minimized the Ekos window.

question 1: Does this have to do with the 5Ghz WIFI speed or can the processor not follow?

I have been thinking about an RPI 4, but read reviews that it is still not 100% stable with SM.
Question 2: If you could convince me that the RPI works great with SM. Can I install the version I own from SM PI 3B + on the PI 4 or is this not possible?

Question 3: If I buy a barebone what is the minimum that you need to run the following programs smoothly.
Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS
Kstars / ekos v3.3.6

parts that are connected to the Telescope
Skywatcher HEQ5
ZWO ASI294MC Pro
ZWO ASI290MM
