Designing a AltAz GoTo control

For a Dobsonian Telescope.

Final Project

The starting point of my project are two reference books written by Alber Highe Engineering, Design and Construction of Newtonian Telescopes and follow up Engineering, Design and Construction of String Telescopes. Both titles uses the Dobson style of telescope as a starting point for telescope making. The main advantages of this type of telescope are portability, superlative technical specifications and ease of use. What these books don't show is how to built the motorized part for tracking stellar objects during observation. My project is to design this missing part.
