This page says I'll be getting my RasPi in late November. Also it should be Rev 2, but I have no idea how that is different from older boards.
My plan to use RasPi to control camera on EQ3-2 and shoot some stars will probably fail. Not because the camera or RasPi but because the tracking mount isn't accurate enough (with my skills at least) to track stars for more than 15 seconds with my equipment. We'll see... Maybe it's worth it just to make the camera shoot 50 photos continuously instead of ten it can shoot now.
I also had other plans for RasPi. A media center with XMBC. I just got an even better plan but that might be outside my skills. I have an old Luxor 3079 amplifier that looks like this:
