    Mini PC Intel® NUC Kit NUC6I5SYH outdoor use

    MikeOmbr

      I purchased the Mini PC NUC Kit (NUC6i5SYH) for use with my telescope. My intention is to have the NUC connected to the telescope configuration (mount, focuser and camera) and loaded with all the software necessary to run the configuration. There will be no keyboard/mouse or monitor connected to the unit, just the telescope components. I will operate the NUC remotely, using Microsoft's Remote Desktop application. I have this all setup and functioning properly.

       

      My question is - What is the temperature range that I can operate the NUC at outdoors. In the winter, the outdoor temperature at night can drop to zero degrees Fahrenheit (-17 degrees Celsius). Will this unit function in this application at this temperature? The longest duration in these temperatures would be about 5-6 hours.

       

      Thank you
