The following video shows the Bascor pan tilt hacked to use a XBee radio and provides the user the facility to control the whole unit using a logitech RUMBLEPAD gamepad joystick, the main console is a Arduino UNO which consists of a USB host shield and a LCD soldered on it which shows various prompts about what's going on the system!

COmplete camera control is also implemented which includes Full Cannon IR remote emulated + LANC features implemented so there is NO feature left on the camera that can;t be controlled

also there is a facility to add the various similar modules and address them individually as wanted one can select a single module out of 10/15/100 units working at the same time and address/control all the features

The red LED burning means that particular unit is selected as shown in the below video:

Very nice indeed.  Just purchased an expensive camera and was thinking about motorizing my tripod.  Any chance you will release the source code and maybe some hardware?  Was thinking I would like to use steppers since I have 6 steppers sitting not doing anything..  But would like to get a look at your setup for ideas and a starting point.

thanks for the appreciation, I made this for a client so not sure he wants this code open sourced! so its not under my jurisdiction.
BUT I can help you with guidance from my side.
