The idea of using servos to aim a telescope isn’t new, but [John]‘s build looks so much like a prop from Johnny Mnemomic that we can’t resist posting it.

He added a webcam and a pair of servos to help him fine focus and adjust the elevation of the scope to minimize vibration during those sensitive operations.
