Raspberry Pi Driven Telescope Mount

full telescope control over WiFi using INDI on a RPi Zero W

This project focuses on gaining remote computer control of a Celestron telescope mount, as well as adding the ability to use a more ergonomic joystick for slewing while at the scope. To achieve these goals, a Raspberry Pi Zero W was integrated into the hand controller while still allowing normal operation of the scope mount. Once integrated, the RPi was then configured to allow remote control using either a cell phone or a laptop running open source astronomy software.”
