Hi,
Along the lines of what has been said so far. A Raspberry Pi4 running things outside at the scope linking in headless mode to your PC or laptop inside hits the spot on cold nights. Or even warm nights when the mozzies are out here in Qld.

Try looking at Astroberry. You can download a preconfigured image onto an SD card which runs the pi and then you just configure for your wifi and astro gear.
Instructions on line are pretty OK.
Free as well and donate if you find it useful but no obligation.
Runs KStars as planetarium and scheduling, indi for all the drivers and can link with PHD2. All loaded in the image.

I would imagine it would work with your existing gear but do your homework first about compatibilities. The great thing about open source software is that is is constantly updating and very good value.

Mike
