Taking the first steps in getting my FK50 to work. After my short experience of a few hours playing with this unit, I would like to request for a few options (mostly software/firmware related).
First a few words about my ‘use-case’ : I have an autonomous observatory with relatively unreliable internet connectivity. As such, we need a weather monitoring setup which would be in direct communication with the computers controlling the observatory. The control computer monitor the weather condition and then depending on safety parameters open the dome and startup the telescope for a night of observations. Weather remains a continuous parameter to watch out for through the night.
With this in mind, here are a few ‘wishlist’ points:
- USB or other connectivity to obtain ‘real-time’ data independent of a mobile app.
- Additional sensors for light level and cloud cover. Is there a template for adding new sensors (software as well as for the pcb)?
Looking forward to hearing your take on the above points.
