Hi steamer;

Thanks for the plug Wayne!

 >     --Wow! Very neat; thanks! :-)

This is a better link. See:
http://www.redrok.com/electron.htm#tracker
My current high power solar tracker series, LED3X. See:
http://www.redrok.com/led3xassm.htm#led3xc1
$5us for the standard LED3XS24V assembled.
2 for dual axis.

The "Receiver Axis" heliostat can be driven with simple
dual axis solar trackers. See this web page for the
concepts.

Here is a guy that sells the whole thing.

What are you going to do with the heliostat?

Duane
