That's the idle temp? Seems high. I idle at 41c.

I can't recommend this case enough. It's made by one dude in California who quit his job to just machine these cases.

Here is a 10 minute stress test of my Pi4 in a FLIRC case running the Stellar Mate beta OS. Never rising above 56c, this is better than my 'active' cooling case with a fan.

Thank you for this. My Flirc case comes soon and my (RMA) Pegasus UPBv2 comes in a day or so and I'm hoping my first all Indi setup will be ready by mid August with the PPBv2 drivers hopefully being in the next update.

Thanks to you two for your advice and opinions. https://www.facebook.com/groups/363556794215200/permalink/480906255813586/I actually found a walkthrough on the Stellarmate FB group that I will have to use. It's been a long time since I played in Linux and when I did, that was just spinning up management VMs using CentOS and Ubuntu 16.04.

Sorry I meant using a flash for writing and reading images instead of the SD.

So what are my limitations now to using Raspbian with the Pi4 for dedicated Astro? The Pi4 4gig is sitting on my desk and I sort of just realized that the normal astro distro platforms like MATE won't be ready for awhile.

I have a RPi4 4-gig sitting on my desk that I want to use for AP. Since the libraries for apps like KSTARS haven't been updated for Raspbian [and other applications], could I still use it to make a full AP software host while I wait for MATE?

Did you get any further with this troubleshooting? I am going to try Raspian on my Pi4 and hopefully not waste a night or two troubleshooting : (

Might I suggest using a fast USB3 flash instead of the boot SD card? I have a 400mbs read/write flash, which is about 4x faster than class 10 SD cards.

Couldnt we just use a fast USB3 flash to save the image? I have a 400mbs up/down flash, which is 4 times faster than C10 SD cards.
