Best 'stick' mini-pc for dual imaging rig?


Recommended Posts

I have an imaging setup driven by a NUC computer. It's located on the pillar and controls the camera (SXV-H16), guider (OAG+Lodestar), filter wheel, focuser, sky sensor, and mount (MX) through TSkyX. I want to add a second scope as a piggy back on the main scope with an SX-M25C camera. This camera is fairly large format, and downloads very slowly. To avoid any potential USB issues if both cameras start to download at the same time I thought of using a mini stick PC mounted on the scope just to control the SX-M25C camera. Can anyone suggest a suitable 'stick' mini-pc, or an alternative?

I happily run my dual setup off one intel compute stick with no USB issues. Might be worth giving it a go first on the NUC to see if a second computer really is required... You could then spend the money saved on something else 😂
