    Wireless All Sky Camera

    Hi Thomas. Thank you for your quick reply. I tried what you suggested and something is clearly wrong but I have no idea what. With my zero knowledge on the system I probably did something wrong. Please see picture for the error message.

    Wireless All Sky Camera

    Wow, I don't know how I was so naive to think this would be an easy project. I am completely new to Unix and the whole Raspberry pi idea so I struggled with a few things here. First, that directory LXDE is now LXDE.pi for the Raspberry pi 3, that took a while to figure out. Also, when you don't know any Unix commands, it takes a few Google searches to realize that to run the autostart, after you enter the above described path you have to run a command Sudo nano autostart, that also took a few hours of my day. In the end, nothing is working and I admit that I need help. The camera is connected to a USB port, nothing is running upon start. I am using a ZWO ASI 120MC, any idea what I could be doing wrong? Thanks!

    Oh, I also forgot to mention I had to try 3-4 different SD cards, including a brand new 64GB and only an old 32GB one worked so far.

    Excellent project. I've been thinking about making an all-sky camera to place outside my observatory. I am new to the Raspberry Pi trend, is the model 3 okay for this project or does it have to be Raspberry Pi 2?
