Looks a bit messy still but I now only have to attach a single 12V power supply (Battery or mains).
Raspberry Pi running Indi connects to a dedicated Wifi router. Kstars / EKOS running on an old Macbook Air.
Pegasus personal powerbox. Provides all the power and the power/logic for the dew strips.
USB 3 powered hub.
The 2 BECs provide 5 V for the USB hub and the Pi.
Scope is a SkyWatcher Esprit 100.
Focusser is a PrimaLuce Senso Sesto.
Guide scope is the converted finder scope from my 8" dob.
You cannot see it on the pictures but I also have an iPolar (best non essential piece of kit I have bought).
All supported by a belt modified HEQ5.
Camera is a non modified EOS 6D and I am currently using a STC Dual narrowband filter (Ha and OIII).
It did take a while to get everything working reliably but now it only takes me about 15 minutes to get everything ready to take the first image.

Here is a photograph of my Indi setup. It consists of:
An OnStep modified Astro-Physics AP400 mount;
An ODROID N2 computer running Ubuntu, KStars, EKOS and Indi server;
A RPI running as a hotspot;
A ZWO ASI1600 camera and Zagyl filter wheel;
A Pegasus Astro DFMC focuser and Power Box;
All this on a home made telescope cart (missing a wheel ) that will allow me to roll it out of the garage and get ready for observing/astrophoto within minutes.
I have a few scopes I swap out depending on my imaging target, but here's what's in the photos below:
AT6RC Telescope with CCDT67 telecompressor at around 914mm focal length.
Moonlite focuser with stepper motor
Orion 60mm Guide Scope
Celestron CGX Mount
Pegasus Ultimate Powerbox V2
RPi4 4GB with aluminum case containing fan and heatsinks
ZWO ASI1600MM-Pro, ZWO Filter Wheel with Astrodon Filters
ZWO ASI290MM Mini Guide camera
My setup. Puny AZ-GTi (but I like it very much) in EQ mode.
UPD: added a second 6Ah battery to feed ZWO cameras separately from RPI.

I know it's a lot and I know I really need to control the rat's nest of cables. With this I'm able to completely take all my light flats and darks from indoors. I setup the scheduler before it gets too dark, and watch it for a bit to make sure nothing funny happens. I the morning I check the logs then go upstairs to cover everything up. Now if we can get a couple of clear nights....
