This has just been announced on the Stellarmate FB page, and looks superb.

Comes with built in RPI4, choice of 4gb or 8gb with Stellarmate pre installed, either 64gb or 128 GT SSD drive, GPS, wifi and ethernet, Real Time Clock, and a multitude of connection and power ports, with a six port USB hub…

Prices are yet to be confirmed…

Same here.  Unless the pricing is egregious, that's v high on my wishlist (late 2021...Christmas...hmm).  If EKOS can start handling multiple imaging cameras at the same time, then that's me pretty much done wrt the tech side!

Interesting.

It's a fair bit bigger than a RPi, not that that is a big issue.
I would not have said no to a couple more USB ports, although with 6 I may get away without a separate  hub, I would have liked to be able to plug an external SSD drive as well to download the images to, so I can just take the drive to my processing computer as I don't like transferring over WiFi. That takes up one USB port.
No HDMI for a monitor so presumably need to connect over WiFi.

But that's just being picky.

Gigabit Ethernet will be better than wifi? 

It is but I don't have an obsy and so means a 20M+ cable running between mount and computer which I spent ages getting rid of long Ethernet and USB cables so wouldn't go this route again.
It is only a small thing and I am being picky. I There are loads of ways I can get the images transfered after the session so this would not put me off getting one, maybe the price would ???

That looks like a nice bit of kit, if the enclosure for it is decent and can be integrated in instead of being tacked on (more like a Primaluce Eagle than a generic Pi box) then it'd be on the shopping list.

They really need to sort out their app thought, it's truly disastrous atm. I mean Stellarmate OS is fine, for when you're near a laptop and can use ekos/kstars, but for the sheer flexibility ASIAir has with their app and device, this wont' come close until Stellarmate can sort out their terrible app.

Quick update.  Was emailing Jasem on something else, & asked about the SMPro.  They are just starting the production samples!  And so hope to be able to go to full production soon.  😃 Cannot wait!

Does the app work yet?! I struggle to connect to it almost all the time I try yet when I VNC in everything is fine. The only reason I try and connect with the app is it updates the time and date. That's it!
