Looking Glass

Postby Andrew Davie » Thu Apr 20, 2017 11:12 pm

I 3D-printed a simple mount for my magnifying 'looking glass' and it turned out OK. I also grabbed source code of yet another PID off the 'net and installed that. It's basically functional - extremely simple code - but I haven't spent much of any time trying to tune it yet. The PID problem is more difficult than I expected, so I'm going to have to actually understand exactly what's happening and how to counteract it. Anyway, here's a video of the whole shebang, with particular attention to the magnifying lens and stand. I think the picture looks way better through it - less flickery to my eye, strangely enough, but that can't be true.
