My 16″ F/4.5 Telescope is pretty close to done – just have to mount the motors and belts, and test it all out. I built one set of electronics over the Xmas break then realized than my gearing (100:1) was causing the slewing of the telescope to it’s targets to be way too slow with the controller board I was using, so I need to build a much much faster board that will pulse the motors much faster. Waiting on some parts and final assembly will move forward!
