The next eshine telescope

Design ideas and tests for a new generation of automatic earthshine telescope

What did we learn from the first try?

Control system using Linux

Perhaps this should be looked at: http://www.rts2.org/

I note that the AstroPhysics mounts (Some models) are supported along with "indi driver" mounts, Meade and Losmandy (we have all three types), as are Andor and Starlight Express CCDs. An impressive range of dome controllers, filter wheels, weather stations (including the Boltwood sensor which is the one we ought to have got ...), and focusers are supported.

Perhaps worth trying this software on a simple Meade GOTO telescope?

Note wiki and list of HOWTOs: http://rts2.org/wiki/

Added later: Have now installed it and had a first look. Hmmm. Seems tricky :)
