Thanks for those pictures. An impressive job! I assume it is on a polar (?) mount so that the 2nd axis is only adjusted every few weeks or so.

I was originally just going to use a single axis polar (?) mount and adjust the 2nd axis manually. However, the panels are now going to be mounted in a more inaccessible place . . . so, back to thinking about something like yours.

Have you got a picture of the inside of the 1st axis drive

Thanks,
Dave
