  • oh yeah, and I had considered making my own equatorial mount but there’s too much mechanical engineering there and the last thing i need is more distractions..

  • Pete: My telescope related project is much more… fun? I plan to make my own camera for deep space/planetary imaging. Got a couple of CMOS image sensors which i need to make breakout boards for (They’re a PITA smd QFN variant package which is gonna kill me to DIY it so i’ll need to get some boards made). Gonna hook it up to an SD card and USB 2.0 (the 480mbit one) via an FPGA with probably an arduino for overall control. BTW i’m surprised sparkfun dont carry the Xess fpga boards since the Xula one is open source.

No public wish lists :(
