My Old EQ3 with a New Hand Controller

The main piece of hardware, along with its testing devices

So here’s the problem: I like redundancy and I like control, fine grained, precise control of my devices. These are obviously not the aspects that drove me to choose the EQ3 mount when purchasing it, but since it is the mount I have at hand, and no physical room nor real opportunity for something better, I decided to hack this mount.

Independently of Hernán De Angelis who looks like he did a great job, from the same starting point — so kudos –, I got my hands dirty and my screen full of code. (tovább…)

Jól kalibrált monitoron mindegyik számnál elkülönülő árnyalat látszik. Ha mégsem látszanak, akkor a megjelenített képek színhiányosan rajzolódnak ki. A monitort valószínűleg kalibrálni kell.

You should see distinct shades for each number. If those shades are not clearly visible, the displayed pictures will lack accuracy. Your display most likely needs to be calibrated (brightness, gamma, contrast etc.).
