My name is Philippe, I am 46 and I am interested in building one or more heliostats.
First I'd like to apologize, i can read english but it's difficult for me to write it correctly
I have been really impressed by all the work that have been done and published on this blog.
I first tried to build an analog one, but I didnt succeed to assembly the mechanism to get a good result. And analog system can hardly provide some functions like switching between several targets.
So after having read this blog, I started to make a numerical one. I got the software, ( thanks to Gabriel ) and step by step, I made a first heliostat with encouraging results.
I find that the more difficult is to make a mechanics strong and precise enough to reflect the sun toward targets with good precision
