Altitude-Azimuth Drive Mechanical Design

Now that we have the BBAstro servos and gear reduction boxes, I can design the mountings for them and their interface to the azimuth bearing ring and the altitude bearing sector. Check the drawings page for additional drawings of these components.

We are evaluating two designs which you’ll see in the Drawings tab – a single drive wheel design for the altitude drive, and a two-wheel design, shown here.  If you have thoughts about it, please share them in the comments.
