Re: Recommendation for Observatory PC

Dale Ghent

What are your networking requirements? Do you /need/ wireless or is ethernet alone fine?

I also presume you will be using it only for system control and image acquisition, so low CPU requirements but you'd prefer some storage?

My observatory has been controlled for several years by a standard rack mount PC. But it is getting older and has been running for years (and has hard drives instead of SSDs). I would like to replace it with a PC that is rated to work down to -10C or so, so I don't have to worry about problems on cold (for California) nights.

Any recommendations? I know I can butya small fanless industrial PC rated for wide temperature range, but would really prefer something in a normal rack mount form factor.
