HI - I think this is a raspberry pi that comes pre-installed with Kstars, Indi and oacapture.

I notice that they also allow you to purchase the software on its own to install on your own Pi if you have one.

If you are comfortable messing around with Linux you can easily install Kstars etc yourself (there is a tutorial on the Indi website) - and all are free. If not, then it might be a cost effective way of getting a working computer.

I have used a Pi for controlling my imaging in the past (using the Pi version of The Sky X), but have now moved on to the Odroid XU4 which is a more powerful version of the Pi (you can add faster storage, and it has USB 3 and gigabit ethernet ports). Both work well and since they are light you can easily velcro them to the mount - and since they are cheap, if things go wrong (e.g. rain), you are not going to be out much more than £50, which is another advantage. Finally, they only use about 3W of electricity, so you can run them from a battery without too much concern.
