reading encoder output ticks
I would like to add encoders with a micro controller Arduino/Teensy/TI msp430 to my old manual C8. I am looking for how Stellarium reads the encoder output ticks.
I have read through the scope control instructions and found the reference where Stellarium can only slew to an area and read the location. I am only interested in reading my scope position.
I do not have a GOTO mount and don't really want one but I would realy like to read my scope position and have Stellarium follow as digital setting circles. I have not found any discussion that do not pertain to GOTO capability, If I have missed them please point me in the right direction.
Is this possible.
Can you help with this problem?
