I'm still waiting for my kit, in order to also review it.
When I receive it I plan you mouniting it on a breadboard and try to do something with a PIC.
As soon as I manage to use it whith the PIC i will post the code, for those who wich to play a bit with it.
Sure i will. Having such a hardware has certainly created new ideas in my mind. I am currently busy next one or two weeks. But then i will be free enough to create a new project to test the hardware in real life environment. The hardware is a such device that finding a project is just a matter of imagination. I have a telescope with equatorial mount and tracking motors but it is not a good quality. I can test its quality and its tracking errors with this sensore hardware by connecting it to a small controller hardware by reading motor position.
Anyway, i need some free time for all of those projects in my mind.
Very nice of you I will do it whenever i find a cam ( unfortunately lost mine some time ago ). Its brand is Konus ( Model, i think it was 1796 ) and its objective size is 130 mm, focal length is 2000 mm. I have been away from my telescope for a long time and i missed it so much. My biggest dream is to take pictures of double stars, galaxies and star clusters. A good quality camera for long exposures is expensive and difficult to find here. so i made a few webcam modifications to take pictures of the sky even if they would probably give dirty results. But the tracking equipment of the telescope is so much poor. I was thinking to change it with stepper motors ( capable of microstepping ) but i have been lack of free times to deal with it since then.
Anyway, but i will post its pictures when i have a cam.
Very good review, thank you.
I got my last week, and before I tried it I read your review.
I must fully agree, and at that time I do not have any comment to add.
In few week I will try to do some SW application how to communicate with device, but it will take some time.
Only when I opened, I was really surprised with dimensions of chip itself, it is beautifully small.
