How to reduce vibration?
Hey - love the product and the build, but I have found that there are some vibrations when the camera is in motion. This is fine for timelapses with high shutter speeds but it won't be good enough for astrophotography or anything in real time.

Has anyone got ideas on how to reduce the vibration? Either in code or something in the build?

What stepper drivers are you using?

Use the TCM2208 stepper motor drivers. They are silent and "interpolate" steps so the vibration will be drastically reduced.

I bought the kit, so the A4988 drivers. Will get hold of a couple of TMC2208 and give it a go! Thanks!

Remember to place the heatsinks on the TMC, they got hot and can get damaged if they do not dissipate the heat properly
