Many days and nights have been spend in CAD, papers full of calculations, frustration over code. Hours out in the cold for calibration and testing. Kilos and kilos of filament wasted. Incredible amounts of coffee consumed. But it’s finally finished, the bugs are removed and everything is working. We are incredibly proud to present you this project and that we are able to give something back to the amazing 3D printing community.
- Full 180 degrees movement in every direction
- ASCOM and Guiding support
- Long Exposures
- Community made addons, such as autoPA
It is our love for both the open-source community and astronomy that made us decide to make the project files publicly available instead of selling them. We strongly believe that others can find different purposes for this device that we couldn’t even think of. So we don’t want any progress or innovation be locked behind a paywall or strict licensing.
However, not everyone has access to a 3D printer or is willing to spend over 60 hours printing parts. OpenAstroTracker Kits and other hardware is available at the shop.
