Sarcnet Az/Ele rotator

Parts

You are going to need a few things. Assuming you are making the same one as me it goes something like this:

1. A box - 
2. 2 off 0.6rpm DC Motors
3. An arduino pro mini and 10 DOF sensor
4. Motor drivers
5. Misc wires and bits and pieces

Sarcnet software

Software

This is a bit of a challenge. Thankfully it is all well written down and its justa case of following the instructions.
