I use Tight VNC on my workstation and I use the app on my iPhone, it has worked perfectly for years now.

I’m hoping that with new dome that I won’t need to go in the dome at all once I have worked out how to switch the pc on remotely.

Similar to Kinch I have a Foscam, but switch off the IR during imaging

Security concerns me too as I don't have a dome and it's probably not na option here for various reasons, despite having a decent sized garden. I am contemplating getting CCTV installed. 

Personally, I just use the in-built default "Windows Remote Desktop", connecting to to multiple Windows Workstations & Servers & even Ubuntu Mate devices, most of which are headless i.e. no ke

This is my worry too, I want to know what's going on in the dome, but also for security with the dome open.

Does TightVNC need an Internet connection? I use RealVNC on my mini PC. Its free to use and I can register 5 devices but the caveat is all traffic is over Internet. Not bothered if I'm at home as can connect via home WiFi or if out and about the mini PC is setup to connect to my phones hotspot. My concern is if I find myself somewhere with no Internet connection I'll then have no way to access the mini pc.

Hi Dave, I have never tried it without an internet connection. I can't check now as my Obsy has been dismantled, but I will check when I have it all back up and running.

I've just laid a cat6 cable and distribution box in the dome to the house and also the dome security camera is now cat6 so I can monitor telescope slews and turn off when imaging. All connected first time using AnyDesk. Really pleased.
