Hello from Leicestershire
« on: 23:02:42, 13 June, 2017 »
Hello. I am just starting out - I have a Canon D6 and have built a barn door tracker. I also wrote some software to go with it that calculates the rotation speed for any mount design/screw pitch/hinge distance and buzzes at the correct speed for tracking. It is only on Android - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ammar174.astrocalc
