I have not been imaging for some time now, my setup quit working at the observatory I share with a friend, and my life has been crazy lately, my wife and I have both had health problems along with my wife's family so fixing it has not been something I've had time for. Anyway last week I was finally able to spend a day at the observatory and I discovered that a mouse or mice got inside the conduit that connects my pier to our "control" room and my PC and destroyed the wiring. It also appears that somehow water was getting into the conduit as the wires were wet when we pulled them out. So this is going to require running new conduit, above ground but below the observatory floor. However this got me thinking about possibly mounting a fanless PC on top or next to my scope, this would reduce the cable run length, and the amount of wires that need to travel with the mount as it moves, I could also get by with only needing to run a network cable to the control room to the pier which can be done much more easily. Has anyone done this? Pros/cons? Thanks!
