Hi All,

This is my first post, I have been using the excellent AstroEq by Tom Carpenter ( The resource is excellent. I originally built the Mega version of Astroeq, but the wiring was hardwork. In my latest version I designed a Mega shield to aid in the wiring problems. I managed to order 5 PCBs from JLCPCB for £10 delivered to the UK (Bargain!).

I power the Mega via a DC-DC converter to 5.2 V (I have had the onboard converters die and take out all motor drivers before.

I have attached the pictures of the build and Gerber files for anyone who would like there own.

Video of it working:
