Hello torinsadoc

 

No

 

I do have experience with the same software on a homemade 3m dome.

 

What experience or information you are after?

Dear All,

I am considering to synchronize the slit on my Sirius 2,3 m dome.

In the netI could not see how a drive is interfacing with the moveable dome.

Has there to be a toothed rack inside the dome or is this to be done with a friction wheel ?

It seems to be that you have some experience with the domes.

Please be so kind to let me know.

 

best regards

Christian
