I hit a really nice milestone on my first major electronics project, building my owner version of Elwood Downey (WB0OEW)'s Arduino-driven sat tracker for handheld antennas. I started this 1.5 years ago and have had a long learning curve, but it's all paid off as I watched the tracker work on an entire AO-92 pass.
I still have a lot of work to do -- switch it off the tripod mount to a music stand and make the attachment more secure and robust, get the components into a case, fix some of the temporary wiring I put in to make modular build and testing easier -- but the goal is in sight!

I'll post an update to my blog in another couple of days.
