This update demonstrates motorized azimuth rotation. Finally there is a fully mechanically working system. Only the mirrors need to be mounted, plus some weatherproof covers.

Here is a closeup of the azimuth motor. It has a pivoting motor mount that allows the belt to be tensioned easily.

I am still working on mounting the big Linix motor that took so much effort to get geared down, but I wanted to show the full mechanism as soon as possible.

Next I will work on some electronics to hook everything up.
