Lattepanda V1.0 min-PC for remote control of astrophotography
Use a Windows 10 mini-PC
to control your setup with
your preferred softs and devices
Lattepanda V1.0 is a windows 10 mini-PC.
The big advantages to my eyes, compared to Raspberry are :
- 1 USB 3.1 port,
- integrated 2GB ram + 32GB SSD (the model I use),
- Windows 10 and the possibiity to easily remote control the mini-PC via TeamViewer,
- the possibility to easily install the usual astronomy ans astrophoto softwares, inclkuding ASCOM platform,
- the possibility to use any type of camera and dslr.
The following picture describes the differents ports and connexions of the board :

The following picture describes the "basic" set of softwares installed on the Lattepanda, for remote control, of cameras and equatorial mount.
The mini-PC may be remotely controlled via TeamViewer with an android tab or smartphone (e.g : Galaxy Tab A 10.5) or a computer. Wifi or LAN connexion may be used.
For those who have a personnal observatory, the embedded Arduino pinouts allow to control accesories such a focuser.
