Re: Off Topic-NUC Computer

In terms of processing power/processor selection, you do not need much for general astrophotography image capture and dome control.  You only really need faster processors when you get into image processing on-board and planetary video.  So if you plan to use the NUC just to capture images, control the mount, track the guide star, etc, then you can get away with something as simple as a Google Playbook.  If you are going to do CMOS with lots of sub frames, then you would want to put more money into the storage.  If you are going to do planetary video with concurrent processing, then you will want to invest more into the processing speed.  I don't have one of these, but Primaluce lab sum up the differences here:
