Early February 2021
I'm building a flat panel that will swing an EL or lightboard up to horizontal to mate with the RASA and Takahashi scopes. The panel will have a 12" linear actuator which can be controlled manually or via a built-in Raspberry pi4 with relay board. This pi will also control an IR positioning aid, and possibly a solenoid to push the button and turn the light panel on.
Remaining to do:
- Adjust positioning aid
- Attach light panel on plywood
- Mount solenoid to start light panel
- Mount switch to choose between manual and pi control for positioning aid
- Mount mementary switch to fire solenoid
