I've been setting the setuid bit on the indi_wmh_focuser executable. I'm guessing that things will work if I add the stellarmate user to the gpio group. I haven't tried that yet.
While we're sharing, here's my work in progress:

Next is a sidecar clip/mount for the SSD and some additional clips/hooks for cable management. I also need to make some short power cables. Now that I've got the main designs done I can size the cables appropriately. I also need to shorten the stepper cable. I wish I had ordered some connectors before Amazon got overloaded and deprioritized the non-essentials. I'll have to go through Digikey or somebody else like that.
I think I'm going to try to keep to full steps for the focuser operation. That will have multiple benefits. If needed, I can adjust the current limit, though if I'm hitting the limit I may have other issues as well.
I really love the Waveshare stepper hat though. I'm very happy I have been able to get rid of the voltage converter I was using to go from 12v in the PPB to 5v for the rPi4.
There is a benefit to the cloudy skies I've been having. I've been able to pace myself better with this project and avoid the sense of urgency to GET IT DONE NOW... THE SKIES ARE GOING TO BE CLEAR TONIGHT. The downside is plenty of time for 3d model revisions == running out of the black PETG I wanted to print everything with.
