32 GB or 64 GB ( Raspberry pi 4 )


For the price, I went with the 64gb. I never come close to filling the SD. My 32 I did a couple of times.

Backups do take up 64gb's, but they zip down to about 16gb's.

But whatever you do, make sure you get the fastest SD you can find. Mine are 100MB/s, C10, U1, Full HD, A1, Micro SD Card.


Ok, I would take this sd-card - SanDisk Extreme Pro 64 GB microSDXC
Thank you for quick reply

Jan created a new topic ' StellarMade 5Ghz wifi - Pi vs Barbone' in the forum. 3 months ago

I use SM on a Raspberry Pi 3B + and 5Ghz wifi.
StellarMate is fully installed on the Pi.
The WIFI speeds of this 5 Ghz wifi are very disappointing with the RPI - it fluctuates between 25 Mbps and 44 Mbps.
Have tested this via "speed test cli"

I use SM on a Raspberry Pi 3B + and 5Ghz wifi.
StellarMate is fully installed on the Pi.
The WIFI speeds of this 5 Ghz wifi with the RPI is very disappointing, it fluctuates between 25 Mbps to 44 Mbps.
I tested this via "speedtest cli" in the terminal.
Via the LAN cable this is Around 18O Mbps, but it is definitely not an option for me.

troubleshoot
StellarMate is connected via VNC to my iMac and worked well the first time.
After 14 days it was another clear night and I connected SM RPI via VNC and it worked, but every time I opened a window another window that minimized stood up.
example if I got up "Ekos window" and wanted to open "mound control window" minimized the Ekos window.

question 1: Does this have to do with the 5Ghz WIFI speed or can the processor not follow?

I have been thinking about an RPI 4, but read reviews that it is still not 100% stable with SM.
Question 2: If you could convince me that the RPI works great with SM. Can I install the version I own from SM PI 3B + on the PI 4 or is this not possible?

Question 3: If I buy a barebone what is the minimum that you need to run the following programs smoothly.
Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS
Kstars / ekos v3.3.6

parts that are connected to the Telescope
Skywatcher HEQ5
ZWO ASI294MC Pro
ZWO ASI290MM

I am not a computer specialist, so keep the answers simple

Raspberry Pi resolution is now 1152X864
Can the Raspberry Pi handle a larger resolution ?
I am now testing this with VNC viewer and the window of the INDI Control panel - Option are too large to fit on the screen of my iMac 27 "

How can I easily solve this ...

Why do I only see a gray image in DSS (DeepSkyStacker) and a color image via APP (AstroPixelProccessor)?
Although APP also says with file information 8b Gray photo ..
Is this normal or do I have something wrong in the INDI Control Panel.

INDI Controle Panel Screenhot INDI Controle Panel - Image Info
APP APP file Info

Through Ekos Caputer I see a beautifully colored photo after having photographed it.
Oh yes, is the sensor of the ASI294MC Pro an 8bit sensor?
Thought it was a 14 bit sensor ...

So I don't understand ...

Jan created a new topic ' Save Ekos Profile' in the forum. 4 months ago

OK after 6 months kstars finally works as it should. Now I was wondering if I can save my profile of ekos with all the trimmings in 1 file so that after a crash, I can install kstars again and then put the saft file back so that everything runs as before.
