Hi im trying to build a satellite tracker for fun, to get information out of the cube sat projects or any satellite I can track. I was wondering if there was any open source java scripts for an arduino controller that would take and input for azimuth and elevation and output for two stepper motors for the platforms two degree's of motion to point the antenna. Thanks I am terrible at programming!
