If you are still going for the synchronization of telescopes, then
you definitly don't want a rpi. Go for one of the more industrial
oriented boards (the original rpi is basically just a graphics card with
an attached arm processor as USB controller). Like the beaglebone,
or probably even better for the Vybrid based boards (Colibry family)
from Toradex (has less EMI noise than the BBB).
