Almost finished.
I was thinking of printing motor brackets, but decided to make them, using Al "L" profile - process is quicker and result is much stronger (not that is really important.. but since the motors are mounted such that they could collide, perhaps metal bracket is the way to go).
Electronics is also ready (OnStep), I just need to mount it in enclosure.


It will be ready for winter SV camp :-)

Finished, ready for action.
ONstep controller (classic MEGA, with Steve's daughter board) is stand-alone (with keypad), or it can be controlled by mob app (via BT) or from laptop (via BT or USB), as convenient.

Hi Ray,

Thanks, it is nice little mount, very portable.
I specifically bought it for 2014 solar eclipse, and it did very good job then.
