Great writeup! Remote observatories don't always need to be expensive. Maybe I overlooked it, but do you have setting circle readouts somewhere?
Thank you for sharing this. I have two Comsicar/Pentax 7.5mm-75mm motorized C mount lenses that I've been thinking about doing something like this with. If you enjoy looking at the night sky, a P8079HP cascade image intensifier tube could work great. I built a functional night vision optic with one using a 25mm f1.4 C mount lens and it works great. Maybe I should test one of the motorized units with it.....Either way, great job!

I made it but I am having trouble getting the sketch to compile. It says Adafruit_gfx.h file missing but I put it in. Is there a list of the files needed for this project? I am a newbie to Arduino, this is my second project.
Oh, you hope it's a Red Sprite and not evidence of paranormal activity closer to home! I would probably capture nothing but street lights, but that aside, this a very cool project. Thanks for sharing!
it would be interesting to get 4 or more of these spaced about 5km apart to see if they could then triangulate the results to identify the approximate location of the strike and the direction it is headed.
Very neat project. After receiving all the parts I breadboarded everything as shown. I ran into two slight issues that others may want to look out for.1. Initially I was unable to read/see anything on the lcd display, it turned out that I needed to up the contrast setting in the code, I think I ended up setting it to 37. So your particular lcd module may have similar issues.2. The button panel I received is not quite the same either. I had to adjust the adc_key_in values in the code for my button panel to work. I measured the voltage for each button pressed and then changed the values in the code.
A Few tips to make your Tech Life Easy!
Someone had this project today, at a Maker-Fest in Dayton, Ohio - I didn't have a chance to talk to them about it thou (in fact I didn't see any one at the booth all day weird.), but glad I found the instructable. Looking forward to building one.
I think this is the most useful tip sheet I have ever read. Just the USB plug one is fantastic!A/R
