  • Could anyone suggest a power supply for this?

  • If I were to hook this up to a Raspberry Pi that was 3.3v, would I need a Logic Level Converter like this https://www.sparkfun.com/products/8745 ? I see that it has a I2C port with 3.3V translation, but I’m not really sure what that means or if it has anything to do with what I’m wanting to know. I am trying to hook it up to a Raspberry pi via a serial connection on the GPIO pins (RX and TX). I would like power it with the raspberry pi on the GPIO pins too if it isn’t too hard.

  • I am going to use this to create a tracking system for my telescope. Does anyone have any advice on putting this in some kind of protective case? It doesn’t have anywhere to screw it down so could I just use some double sided tape or something and stick it? It doesn’t have to be too protective, I just want to put it inside of something.
