Making real progress

The scope got completely re-assembled yesterday and the new bearings are superb. In fact they run so easily I will now have to add some form of damping for when I want to use in manual “push to” mode.

The encoders were installed for the first time and hooked up with the Nexus and SkySafari. Worked perfectly!

Were still having fun with the code. I think we are on version 21, which still has a bug or two, or three, or four….!
