Hand Controller Mounting Arm

In an effort to completely eliminate dangling cables around the Azimuth axis of the 8SE mount, I replicated the hand controller holder that comes with newer mounts like the Deluxe CPC, and added some enhancements to hold my focus motor. To mount to the arm of the NexStar mount, I had to create a 3-D model using photogrammetry and then import that into my 3-D modeling tool and convert the surface into something more practical to work with. From there I was able to make a clip and arm that snaps onto the column below the battery mount and straps into place.
