Equipped with a steel and aluminum frame to give stability and solidity. 3D printed supports and gear system to offer the precision and geometric complexity necessary for movement.
Arduino-based control electronics. Star tracking and altazimuth movement via 28BYJ-48 stepper motors with ULN2003 drivers to ensure power and precision.
USB cable for future development of extensions on external computers.
Once you've aligned your frame to the North Star, you can activate the star tracker to take long exposure photos. With an accuracy of 120 steps per minute, 360° azimuth rotation and 130° elevation range.
A project that combined the passion for astrophotography, with mechanics and electronics.
