Cloud computing for astroimaging
« on: 22:14:45, 17 May, 2018 »
My home PC (and laptop) are both rather long in the tooth and can take hours to process images.  So I was thinking about utilising some hefty compute resources from my Azure subscription ?.   Now obviously I can just create a VM and install pixinsight to it and run it like a normal computer, however for the sort of size VM I have in mind that is relatively expensive so I was thinking about using Batch Processing to get access to the "Low Priority" pricing tier since the Pixinsight workflow is the sort of thing that can tolerate being interrupted.

Has anyone here tried anything like this before?
