I'm gonna throw a little grenade in here...

I hate the idea of lugging a laptop outside... I really, really do...

So... if I'm gonna do planetary with my ZWO ASI224MC, I hook it up to my android tablet via USB OTG cable & use the ASICAP (called something else now) app & capture just fine...

If I'm doing Deep Sky stuff with my DSLR, I use Stellarmate on RPi 4 together with either Stellarmate app on my android tablet or via virtual window on my android tablet...

Can I capture video at mega feet per second.. ummm, no but, the results are just fine IMHO & I don't have to lug a laptop outside or worry about how to power it all coz, for planetary I just make sure my tablet's fully charged & for DSO work, I'm connected wirelessly to Stellarmate so can just plug in my tablet to USB output on my power distribution box...

My 2.15 cents worth...

Cheers
