The other big advantage doing it with a mini pc (ITX/NUC/stick) is that once mounted on the scope (dovetail/Velcro etc) and connected up to cameras etc, it’s quick and easy to setup. Take scope et al out, put on mount and one lead to the mount and voila! Im using an Intel nuc, but a massive thread on cloudy just using a stick pc.....and then I remote in with my iPad to get things going, or my desktop from the office if it’s hot and sticky, then Ill do some i3 nuc can be had pretty cheaply as well, a celeron even more so, and more than powerful enough!
