I'd love to give it a go although my schedule is such that I wouldn't be able to try imaging for a week or more.

Thanks for this additional info on Remote solving on the Stellarmate. I will try this, to see if the net effect is faster than local solving which requires long wifi download times (a minute) in my configuration. Just have to wait for some clear skies.

I use a MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2013) to connect via wifi to the RPi3B+ controlling the scope etc. It works fine for me. The only issue I have is downloading the fits files to the MacBook Pro as the client (my .fits files are 72M from a Nikon D800). These downloads take a while e.g. 1 minute. Conversely if I have the images saved (local) to the RPi3B+ then the performance is much faster. I don't fault the MacBook Pro for this scenario.

That would be excellent! I had asked about this in an earlier thread, but ended up still needing to use vnc/Kstars to get things running. With that I believe this would be a replacement for hardware like SkyFi. Only remaining issue is powering off the RPI when finished using the unit. With nothing running other than the skysafari driver (and the specific scope driver and dummy camera simulator) how resilient is the system to just unplugging it?

Hi, Simple question I hope. Is there a way to configure the NoVNC window such that it would fit to the screen size of the current browser window to avoid having to scroll? For example, when using a MacBook, navigation is trivial, but when viewing this from an iPad, things like KStar dialog window resizing can be problematic with fat fingers.

Dumb question - after running a software update against your ppa:mutlaqja/indinightly on stellarmate how does one know if I've got this update yet? ;)
