Building a HomeBrew GPS for the Celestron Nexstar Telescope AUX bus

Cut a hole for the switch, a notch for the cord, and hot-glue the GPS into place, antenna side up! Twist the cabling around and hot-glue the Arduino and the cable, holding them in place while the glue hardens.Note that I attached everything but the switch to the underside of the box lid, so that it is all accessible for future re-programming if need be.

I use black-coloured hot-melt glue. It looks better, but is harder to see in the photos.

Screwed the two parts of the box together.
assembled
Velcro'd the completed unit to the side of my telescope mount. The on/off switch enables/disables the built-in WiFi of the Evolution mount.
