Just as we did for the upgrade of the computer from Windows XP to Windows 7 in 2012, this page is to document the process of installing a new computer in the observatory, and noting any steps we need to take or problems we encountered. It is mostly for our own internal records, but perhaps it could help someone else installing observatory software as well.

Software installation

  • Installed UltraVNC on both old and new computers so we can transfer files easily via VNC.

Hardware / system settings

  • Formatted D: drive as NTFS, named as "Telescope data".
