CEM120EC2 with its home made anti collision protection

Description

I have recently equiped my new mount CEM120EC2 to avoid crashes in RA and DEC.
I am now feeling very relax letting the mount running unattended all night and doing Meridian Flip and other target changes.
Installation has been very easy : I used VELCRO tape to fix the detectors to the mount

The Original Image shows the DEC limit switch
Image B shows mount getting close to meridian
Image E : shows the RA switch when the mount reach meridian past 36 min
Image C : shows the wiring with all the " switches connected in serie with the main 12V mount supply.

In case one switch activate, the mount power is disconnected.
