Thanks for the tip on the EOS, I'll look for it.

I'm setting up the PI. I'm missing a heatsink (does it get too hot during sessions?) for it, otherwise, it's an 8G, 4b so it seems it fits the bill. Also, I think I have an RTC for it somewhere, not sure if it's plug-and-play or I need to do any config., if you know plz point me to it.

I've considered the StellarMate, yes. I need to understand if the kstars route works for me...

Thanks

Hi

Doing visual for some time I want to test some photography,
Currently, I have a canon 60d with a 24-105 L (1st edition). Also a skywatcher 50PDS.
For guiding, I bought a zwo clone 120MM, the T7m. The mount will be an NEQ6.

I'm setting up a laptop for controlling all this, I also have a PI4b around if it's needed.
Installed ununto 20.04.3 LTS on a Dell i5, 16GB ram, 256gb ssd disk.
I installed KStars Version 3.5.5 Stable using apt, from  ppa:mutlaqja/ppa. Also the gpphoto driver from there.
Bare with me.. problems...:
- The ZWO clone does not work, even after the firmware upgrade. Im getting hw resets of somekind.  It seems to work just fine on my MacBook pro (intel) with the same kstars version
- Is there any way to have the autofocus working with my canon and lenses? 
- Sometimes it seems the canon camera hangs, stays on / no response to commands, I need to restart everything

Is ubuntu a good platform for running this? Is there a better distribution? Should I use the 20.04 ou a previous one?
Or, should I use Osx or windows for better stability and performance?

If these questions are already addressed somewhere please point me there.

Thanks
