  1. Will the AltAz mount of the astrofi connect to the Pi? How is that physically achievable? ETH or WiFi? Or smth else?
  2. I am actually quite confused. I cannot find whether the astrofi 102 focuser can be motorised or not. Can you please propose a full setup (you already understand what i am looking for) that would be easy to assemble? I would like of the shelf parts for everything, if possible. Thanks again.
  3. I am very familiar with rpi and Unix. My main concern is getting components that will work with each other. I still haven't figured out how everything is connected and who does what. Assuming an AstroFi 102, and a auto focused, motor and camera do I need anything else? In that case who does the driving? The astrofi mount which is WiFi capable and AltAz? What would the Astroberry do in such a setup? Thanks
  4. Can you please elaborate on the fov calculation procedure? Can you propose a sample configuration for my setup? Is the astrofi 102 a good option? Who does the driving, the astrofi or another component? Total noob here. Sorry for any silly questions I have.
  5. Hi there! I am seeking for advice from you good people. I want to create a setup for stargazing which is fully automated. Ideally every process like scope calibration, guiding, tracking, focusing and taking photos should be done through WiFi, preferably from an iPad tablet. Planetary imaging is the main purpose. I don't really care about deep space imaging. I want the whole setup to be rather cheap, small and light, at the expense of imaging quality. I am a total noob (used to play with an ETX-70 lots of years ago), but I really need the functionality I have described above
