Welcome to my astronomy blog, I dedicate myself to the simplest form of amateur astronomy which requires only portable equipments.
Nice job! I'm very interested abut your solution for motoring the DEC axis. What kind of parts did you use? Where did you buy them?
The infamous Chinese platform... taobao
Ha! I was not familiar with Taobao but now, I'm.If I wanted to do the same in my mount, do you have a list of parts that I could buy somewhere? I think it is a very tempting project to try to motorize the DEC plate.
I checked my taobao record, I believe this is the motor:https://world.taobao.com/item/526042433163.htm?fromSite=main&spm=a312a.7700846.0.0.JJTCGd&_u=cmnemop9772And this is the main gear:https://world.taobao.com/item/531701083161.htm?fromSite=main&spm=a312a.7700846.0.0.JJTCGd&_u=cmnemop5135The motor controller is rather easy, since this is a DC motor only... you reverse the polarity, the direction of rotation will change.
Very nice! Thank you so much. I really appreciate it.
