Camera remote control - different !

As I have said having Aspergers is a real GREAT thing but on occasions can be a pain, like not wanting to go outside.

Having this setup for a start for solar, I was wondering, this...........

Hi,

So, just to be clear, you want to use your ASI camera to image solar and wirelessly download the images to.... a remote computer inside the house?
If this is the case you could get a Raspberry Pi (use Raspian or Ubuntu as the operating system on the Pi), download some free imaging software and save your images to your remote desktop using the Pi wifi.
Have a look at KStars/EKOS. It's free, support is pretty good and should do the job. There are lots of videos and tutorials on the net. The ASI is supported and you can use the free version of Team Viewer to connect to the Pi (headless i.e. no keyboard or screen needs to be connected to the Pi) open up Indi server and then, through your network, connect using a desktop (Windows) version of KStars. You can control your mount with this system at the same time, most computer controlled mounts are supported. Raspberry Pi can be picked up very cheaply.
I am sure that there are other ways to do this, others will comment. This is one of the cheapest I can think of. The ASI is likely to give much better quality than the Bresser (looking at the price) but this is an assumption as I have no knowledge of the Bresser wifi camera

Cheers
