NOTES:
------
(1) FINALLY - after battling for at least six months with my system which
     erratically lost position which sometimes made it difficult to
     identify fields and point at the correct objects, I found that the
     ribbon cable from computer to electronics had an intermittent
     connection. I even went as far as rebuilding the entire electronics
     with no luck. What made it difficult was that I had checked the
     ribbon cable several time and it worked properly! Anyway the system
     has now far more torque than before so no longer battles to carry a
     heavy load so next time I go back to using the 8 inch reflector with
     the Canon 650D DSLR until my microline CCD camera returns from the USA
     where it has been repaired. Whilst the Canon 650D can do the job its
     only 1 second time resolution and the images are grotty compared to
     what the CCD camera produces.
