Not nessecarily Suse specific but a quick google search pointed to this link. http://tldp.org/HOWTO/Astronomy-HOWT...recontrol.html

Talon is nice but last I know does not work meade controls.
Probably XEphem will do what you need.
Maybe ktelescope may work but not sure.
Also I seen a link about kstars but not sure if it can control telescopes. Thought it was just a planetary display like stellarium.

Can't you use v4l for capturing fram from camera??
then save it in bitmap, then play around with it?
