Hi,no thinking to move to raspberry...
Hi Jaap,The file should be in the same directory as the .ino file. Anyway, if you were able to compile with no errors, you certainly did the right thing!Cheers

Hi,I don't know the leonardo features, but maybe you can use leonardo as well, with a minimum changes at the code.I used DUE because of two reasons: precision of the float (double) variables (more bits) and at least 4 digital input pins working as interrupts (for the encoders). For your reference, I started this project with a UNO and then changed to DUE.I think there is no problem using a macbook (as long as the arduino IDE is installed and working..!).
Hi,There should be everything fine with the sketch, but it only will work with arduino DUE. Tell me more about the problem you have found.. (compiling, loading, ...)
Hi,Thank you all for your comments! This project intents to be a push-to and not a go-to (at least for now..!!!). Because there are no motors, the telescope don't have the ability to track objects automatically. By doing this, you will have the telescope position at stellarium and then you need to move the telescope manually to the object you want to point (guided by stellarium). Because I only used one arduino and two encoders, everything is powered by a regular USB (I < 500mA).

Hi Malkaris!It's amazing what you can do with some cheap hardware, software and.. the night sky!That song is called "Cry for the moon" and the artist, actually, is Epica (funny thing..).Thanks for your comment and let me know when you start with astro-photography.
Hi Rickatt,Thanks for you comment! Sorry if you feel confused with the wiring.. It's a simple schematics that shows how to wire only one channel from the encoder. You must do 4 like that.Anyway, in a very short term, I will update with a new and more clear diagram.
