My CCD fantasy

I would need to control the telescope with some sort of computer program. I would be able to download the images from the CCD to my computer.

I have a Mac. I often read Astronomy Magazine and love it.

Has there ever been an article on how to set up an 8 or 12 inch Schmidt-Cassegrain with a CCD that connects to a real time image capture program? I could then have my telescope set up out in the country and turn on my computer in the city. Control and point the telescope from home and have the images download to my monitor. I would be able to lock on to distant parts of the sky and take time exposures of distant objects. Save my images and print them in full color. All this fun and no light pollution.
