Talk:SatNOGS Rotator Controller

From SatNOGS Wiki

while building the controller i stumbled across some questions which could be explained more clearly (at least from a beginner point of view)

  • pros and cons of using microstepping
  • should r4 and r7 be soldered when using full steps or shall they be ignored at all?
  • pros and cons of using uart vs. r485

For Newbies

A section could exist to explain how to make the connections for the power supply. I could not find it anywhere and if it exists already a link could be put to it.

There are a lot of photos but it would be useful to have something close to a complete assembled rotator controller in the metallic box.
