<t>I think this idea is cool and appeals to my own interests as well, but...I am not sure this is the best way to accomplish the goal e.g. time-lapse star photography.  I have dabbled with this myself, so I have a bit of insight <br/> <br/> Since this sounds like a 'one night' experiment, depending ...

Re: Linux before the Pi arrives
