Whether you are looking for a guide of where to point your telescope or just have a fascination for our solar system, this project is definitely for you. Shubham Paul has put together a great real time planet tracking system. Although the hardware on this project is fairly simple consisting of an Arduino, GPS module and servo, the algorithms that calculate the approximation of a planet’s position using Kepler’s laws are particularly impressive. To find out more about how you can build your own real time planet tracker checkout the following link.
