Mr. Ecloud
Thank you for information.
Certainly Skychart could not install from deb file.

On Rpi 3 or Intel 64 bit machines it worked with firmware, but it was not available on this machine.

Did you work in your environment?

Products of Chinese vendors (QHY ​​and ZWO) feel that support of LINUX is not good.
(Although expensive, Lodestar works better.)

Lin_guider does not need a 'driver' to run the qhy camera, but the firmwares. So these firmwares could make Lin_guider work, on qhy cameras - ex. my qhy5L-II
ASI cameras have not been tested yet. But ASI do work with Indi nightly.

I hope that it works as a user in INDI and LINUX environments without problems.

Mr. Ekroud
Thank you for the information.
I never thought that the Skychart would respond very quickly.
I am very happy.
As further ARM 64 compliance advances, Nanopi-M 4 is suitable as an alternative to Rpi 3.

I saw your x with Zwo driver but I managed to configure indi-full, kstars-bleeding within NanoPi M4 running Lubuntu 32 bits and upgrading to Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS. I can confirm that I'm able to use ASI-071C with a tele lens and a Nexstar mount as test gears with indiserver -v indi_celestron_gps indi_asi_ccd, and running kstars from pc using wifi. I tried also to install astrometry.net but got an error with guvcview "not going to be installed"..
I solved by uninstalling indi-full, and force the installations of libgslcblas0, libgsl23 and libguvcview-2.0-2. Later, guvcview was installed without problem and also astrometry.net installed without error. It is great to use USB3.0 with Zwo ccd and even using wifi, the downloading time is quite impresive.

Have fun,
Agustin

Regarding ZWO, it is evaluation with ASI120MC.
This camera can not be used with LINUX unless the firmware is replaced.
Moreover, support was aborted from the manufacturer.

It worked in RPi 3, OrangePi, AP 34, but unfortunately it did not work in NanoPiM 4.

If Astronomy software advances correspondence to ARM 64, Ubuntu 18.04 I think that NanoPiM 4 will be a good choice.
(There is less trouble than the initial RPi 3.)

With the 1.7.5 version upgrade, it seems that the problem with the driver has been fixed.

Only localization is not working.

Processing is fast and comfortable.

Just a quick update ,
I’ve tried to use ZWO ASI183MM with NanoPi M4 and it succeeded with armbian OS.
Higher FPS with a raspi -like single board computer can be achieved now.

I used the armv8 ZWO library with python.
