Roll off roof automation


Recommended Posts

I have built my observatory and have a roll off roof which is 2.5 by 2.5 metres and made of fibreglass plus core. It is strong enough to stand on and only 40kg. It rolls off with the touch of a single finger. I am setting up a leed screw attached to an arduino controlled stepper motor to open and close it. I am modifying the code at the moment and would like to find a way to replace the open close and stop buttons with an Ascom driver.

Does any one else have any experience in this area. Alternatively this controller may be an option.... https://lunatico.es/ourproducts-dragonfly.html


Any thoughts?
