Time for some Raspberry PI

At last it was time to add the Raspberry PI to the system. There was just enough space in the servo box for the rPI, plus a “level converter” needed to provide a serial port to talk to the Nexus DSC.

I have arranged it so that the Phidget drive system is controlled by a USB lead that loops out of the box. I can plug it back into the rPI for local control, or plug it into my Mac Book Air via an extension lead.
