This image is the result of stopping to work with my laptop , who is near his end after 10 years it seems and the introduction for me to the marvel called Raspberry Pi .

it was a nice experiment which learned me to use remote controlling my telescope, cameras,... . it was also a baptising for me to learning to work with SSH , VNC,.... all things i never knew till it came up to me, to buy a Raspberry Pi and learning Linux.

And i am very pleased how all came out. now my mount keeps tracking. i was also happy with the guiding, online platesolving,... things which gave me some headaches with my laptop.

all processing is done in PI and the TIFF-JPEG is done by Darktable.

Pixinsight is a lovely program to use ones you learn to make and use masks , dare to split up your rgb and working on them sepratly.

Hope you like it , constructive critism is always welcome ofcourse
