Hi,no thinking to move to raspberry...
Convert a Flashlight for Astronomy in a Few Seconds
excellent idea my freind so do you think work your project or future proyect with 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
Hello Nelson,The system is working, thanks, but i don't no for shure off i put the ''config.h''correct in the Nf_v1.greetingsjaap hoogerdijk

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..!).
Thanks for the reply the problem is i used the arduino leonardoI go try it again with a due.Wil this also working with a macbook?Greetings Jaap Hoogerdijk
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, ...)
Hello Nelson Ferraz,I think idid not the arduino sketch good.can you send me some instructions so i can look what i did wrong.thanks .greetingsjaap hoogerdijkmail email@example.com
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).

This is a great DIY telescope controller. I have a nice telescope, but it has limited abilities because it lacks electrical control. What is this whole device powered from USB?
Does this set up also have the ability to continually track the sky as it moves and hold steady on certain items for large amounts of time?
