I don't know if this is standard in this forumn or not but I thought I'd introduce myself.
My name is Doug and have have jsut recently began using the AVR series procoessors for so Astronomy projects. Thi sis the first time in years I have been back into the electronics side of the world, I've been a MVS System programmer for several years now.
Stuff i'm working on include
a GPS interface to a Meade LX200 telescope to set the LAT/LONG, DATE and Time
a Digital Focus Controller (this is the big project) to allow precise focusing of a scope
a Color Filter Wheel, Autoguider and Focus controller
and a stand alone Autoguider
I just ordered a STK500 and Codevision AVR for work with this stuff and I'll be reading through the
archives to see what you've already talked about before asking any questions (and i'm sure i'll have some)
Anyway, Wanted to say Hi to everyone
