    Hi I am into astronomy and have a 12" dobsonian telescope.

    The base is circular and runs on bearings to rotate in 360 degrees.

    It would be a great help in locating objects if i could build a very cheap encoder which could give me the position on a 360 degree scale.

    something like this

    or even with an optical reader with a printed encoder strip.

    First thing anyone want price me for doing this?

    Second is it fairly straight forward what would be the parts required?
