Pulsar Observatories Dome Rotation Solution with TheSky

Here we present a bespoke dome rotation system created for a Pulsar Observatory dome. This was developed to give automatic dome tracking and slewing slaved to the mount when under control of TheSky software. Manual adjustments of the dome aperture is a cumbersome mode of operation but no off-the-shelf solution exists for slaving the dome to the computer.

Main features include:

The solution consists of direct drive stepper motors mounted on the moving part of the dome which connect to a PC via USB.
