Hello all,

Here is an interesting project using the SQM-LU to scan and collect
light readings with a motorized platform.

Submitted by: Fernando Fernandez
Organization: The amateur astronomy association of Spain; "Luz Cero"
Project name: MAROC (Robotic and Automatic Measurement of the dark sky) 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
  We've developed an automated system to perform many lectures scanning 
near full sky and generating excel file and a graph. Software is Java 
based and GPL available for download. Hardware is a SQM-LU and a little 
board to control two step motors.
