Edward R. Byers Co. Sidereal Rate Drive

Byers Drive built by an Ice In Space Member.

The photos explain it best. Both Axis, the electronics and hand controller.

It has been in storage for years and powered up way back then when connected to a battery.

Its a work of art and a great project for someone. I never did anything with it.

The classic Byers worm gear is worth having.

Dandenong Area.
