Thanks Liam and Jeffery,
Looks like you all agree. I looked up NUC and RDP, and I understand. Looks like I have some homework to do but this seems like something I can do. Liam, thanks for explaining the CP4 to me, I had a feeling it would not do what I thought it might. Thanks again for the advice.

That’s a great idea. I hadn’t considered that. I have been watching the forum for some time and see some very interesting threads from some really interesting people. I wonder who enjoys their job more, you or Roland.
Thanks for your advice.

IMNSHO, set up a compact observatory PC next to the scope and then controle that PC remotely from the house.

I was lucky enough to be notified recently I’m going to be the proud father of an 1100GTO mount. I have read through the GTOCP4 Operating Instructions as I plan on how to connect the mount to a PC, CCD Camera, focuser, and other accessories. I would like to locate the mount outside in a structure with a ROR, and connect to a PC in the house about 150 ft away. I was thinking of using the Ethernet port and I read that it can also be done with a USB and Icron 2304 USB extender. I am curious if cameras, focuses and other accessories can be connected to the GTOCP4 and then be operated by the PC in the house? Is there a preferred method for this kind of setup? I would appreciate any advice you might be willing to pass along.
