Indeed however in an earlier post someone mentioned that one of the differences between Stellarmate and Astroberry was EKOS Live and this is not the case.

Both use KStars/EKOS and both use an RPi so the differences come down to either accessing the control panel via an app or via VNC (although with Stellarmate you have both options) and that's about it and EKOS Live largely eradicates this difference as there isn't much the app does that Live does not.

In terms of the functionality of Kstars/EKOS they are the, to all intents and purposes, the same and using KStars/EKOS on one is identical to using it on the other. The setup up wizard of Stellarmate is slightly slicker and you are more shielded from the underlying OS but the difference is marginal so it comes down to support. With Stellarmate you get perhaps a quicker response although that said I raised an issue with the developer of Astroberry on another forum yesterday and he pushed out a fix this morning.

Just a quick note on this. I managed to raise this with Radek on the SGL forum and he has just pushed through a fix which appears to be working so you just need to sudo apt upadte and sudo apt upgrade and it should ok. I have tested the fix using 1 second updates for the GPS and all seems well.


It is worth noting that EKOS Live is available to Astroberry users as well. Just register on EKOS Live and in the EKOS control click on the little cloud symbol and hey presto - just pop in your log in details and away you go. I have tested this and it works very well.
